Dunkin’ Awards Scholarships To College-Bound Students


Broadneck High School graduate Clementine McLemore and Severna Park High School graduate James Henson III were two winners in this year’s Dunkin’ Regional Scholarship Program, which awarded $100,000 in scholarships to students throughout Maryland, Washington, D.C. and Virginia.

Students were selected from more than 1,000 applicants based on their academic record, demonstrated leadership, and proven commitment to their school and their local community. Dunkin’ awarded each recipient with a $2,500 scholarship to pursue an undergraduate degree at an accredited two- or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school of their choice in the fall.

Recipients were honored at an awards ceremony July 24 at the Hornor Maritime Center in Annapolis.

She was a 2022 Coca Cola Foundation scholarship semifinalist, 2022 WJZ Black History Oratory Competition finalist, 2022 girls soccer state finalist, varsity sailor with a love for the arts, and an avid bonsai enthusiast.
