Six employees of ArborMetrics Solutions, Inc., who are graduates of the Allegany College of Maryland (ACM) forest technology program, have established a scholarship fund to assist forestry students at their alma mater. A half dozen employees of the firm, which assists utilities and municipalities in managing vegetation, started the fund in recognition of the quality of the ACM program’s career preparation, as well as a desire to help future forestry students overcome financial hurdles.
The ArborMetrics Solutions Allegany Alumni Scholarship, which is administered by the ACM Foundation, will assist second-year students in the college’s associate degree program. The first award of the scholarship will be for the spring 2016 semester. For more information, call the ACM Foundation at 301-784-5200.
