Janice M. Scott Memorial Scholarship Fund
The establishment of the Janice M. Scott Memorial Scholarship Fund occurred in October 2001. This scholarship fund is named in honor of Janice Marie Scott. Why was this scholarship fund established? To recognize her involvement with various youth programs and community service activities within the Greater Metropolitan Area of Washington, DC. Janice was one of 125 individuals that perished in the Pentagon on September 11, 2001 when terrorists hijacked and crashed American Airlines Flight 77 into the building of the Pentagon. She was the daughter of Geraldine Holmes of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Janice was born in Memphis, Tennessee on October 12, 1954. Shortly after her birth, Janice moved with her family from Memphis to Milwaukee. She attended public school in Milwaukee until her mid-teen years. During the late 1960’s, she and most of her family moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado where one of her older sisters was assigned as a soldier to Fort Carson near the city of Colorado Springs. She graduated in 1972 from Harrison High School. Her sister was reassigned to a military installation in West Germany soon after she graduated from high school. Janice then took on the task of caring for her younger sister and the daughter of the sister who went to West Germany. She assumed this task in conjunction with taking classes at a business college and working on Fort Carson.

In 1975, Janice met 2nd Lieutenant Abraham Scott. He was assigned to the Finance Office on Fort Carson. After a brief engagement, Abraham and Janice traveled to his hometown of Beaufort, South Carolina and they were married by his father. They were blessed with two daughters, Crystal Marie and Angel Marie. In 1988, Janice earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration from the adult school of the University of Maryland in College Park, Maryland. She was a member of five organizations: Blacks-In-Government; Burke/Fairfax Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated; American Society of Military Comptrollers; the Association of Government Accountants; and the 5-Star Toastmasters Club.

American Legion Auxiliary Maryland Girls State:  June 17-22, 2018 * Salisbury University * Salisbury, Maryland 21801.  ALA GIRLS STATE is a residential training program for high school girls, which is operated in all 50 states. The objective is to provide "hands on" training in the management of a democratic government at city, county and state levels. Topics such as the structure of the various levels of government, simulated legislation, twoparty politics and the duties of various government offices will be covered. The legislative program includes sessions with lobbyists. Speakers who hold offices at various levels of government throughout the state will address the group to explain their jobs and answer questions. The citizens will campaign for various offices and learn to vote electronically as part of the experience. They will also receive a preview of college life and meet peers from across the state. A Senior and Junior Senator will be elected to represent Maryland at Girls Nation where a similar program is conducted at the national level. ELIGIBLE young women must have completed their junior year of high school in the upper third of their class and must be a United States citizen or non-citizen attending school and residing in Maryland. Applicant does not have to be a junior member of the American Legion Auxiliary, but a junior member who does not live in Maryland may attend. RECRUITING is carried out with the help of school officials. In some schools an Awards Committee or Guidance Office may prescreen the candidates. However, the final decision is up to the sponsoring American Legion Auxiliary Unit. Former Girls State citizens in the senior class will be useful in identifying likely candidates and "talking up" the program. A handout to briefly explain the program has been prepared for all prospects. It may also be helpful, to hold a recruiting meeting with the Unit representative, former Girls Sate citizens and prospective candidates. SELECTION is based on interest in government and the qualities of Leadership, Character, Honesty, Scholarship and Cooperativeness. While the girls selected should have strong academic credentials, an interest in government and politics and an aptitude for leadership are of great importance. FEE: Selection for the Girl State program is equivalent to a scholarship of $290, which is borne by the sponsoring Unit. This includes tuition, books, room and board. A $45 registration fee is to be paid by each young lady selected to attend Girls State; check to be made payable to the sponsoring Unit.Click here for applicationApplication deadline is March 10, 2018.
