Anirban Basu — a familiar voice to those who listen to WYPR’s “Morning Economic Report” — gave a presentation at Central Scholarship’s Annual Meeting last month. Each year, Central Scholarship’s supporters gather to look back at another year of helping students. At this year’s Annual Meeting last month, Anirban Basu of WYPR’s Morning Economic Report presented data about the state of higher education in Maryland. Board members, staff, and donors listened on as Anirban praised Maryland for the way in which it prioritizes higher education. Along with Anirban, scholarship recipient Aaron Parker spoke about what his funding has meant to him. As a law student at the University of Maryland, the burden of tuition payments was a heavy one to bear.
Aaron is grateful to have received a scholarship and looks forward to giving back to the community in the future.
