Delmar High School Senior Awards

Last night at Delmar High School the Senior awards were given out, more important the scholarships were handed out. As any parent with a child going to college will tell you, money is what it is about. As happens in most schools, half of the money / scholarships went to six students. At Delmar those six were; Blair Carey, Rebecca Mir, Lauren Ellis, Erin Kennan, Autumn Fischer, and Carolyn Schilling. The other half of the scholarships went to another 28 students.

What was most pronounced was the lack of awards/scholarships to male students. Not only is the National Honor Society in Delmar High School made up of mostly females but the majority of awards were given to females. Is this a national trend or just something that effects the Lower Shore/Delmar area?
