Northrop Grumman Corp. recently celebrated its eighth annual Engineering Scholars program by awarding 24 graduating high school seniors from across Maryland with a total of $240,000 in college scholarships to be used this fall. One student from each of Maryland's 23 counties and the city of Baltimore received the individual merit-based scholarships of $10,000 during an awards reception and dinner hosted by Northrop Grumman at the Baltimore Museum of Industry on June 18.

Jason A. Camarano, a graduate of South Hagerstown High School, was the award recipient from Washington County.

A natural leader, Jason is described by one of his teachers as a young man with "limitless potential. His work ethic is outstanding, and he has the intellect to take him wherever his dreams may lead."

With an impressive list of accomplishments, Jason has demonstrated leadership and acted as a role model in many activities. He is the valedictorian of his senior class of 240 students. He is also the co-captain of his lacrosse team and he has earned the rank of Eagle Scout in his Boy Scout troop. He performed in his high school musical, "Oliver." He is a member of the National Honor Society, the Honor Club and the Ecology Club, and has been recognized as a National Merit Scholar finalist and a Maryland Distinguished Scholar.
