Senator Ben Cardin joined Central Scholarship board, staff, and students this month to discuss higher education in Maryland and the nation. The senator and his wife, Myrna Cardin, joined us for “Bagels with Ben” in our office to engage in a conversation about how we can work with the government to help Maryland students succeed. Several scholarship recipients were present and voiced their opinions about large loan amounts, financial aid issues, and the price of college.
