Generous Oak Crest Residents Help Student Employees Pave Their Paths to Success

July 10, 2024
Oak Crest Scholars 2024

As this school year came to a close, 46 local high school students were recognized as Scholars at Oak Crest, an Erickson Senior Living community in Parkville, Md. 

These student employees, who held positions throughout the community, including as servers, hosts, and hostesses in Oak Crest’s multiple on-campus restaurants, displayed an unwavering commitment to care and excellence. 

To recognize their dedication and propel their promising futures, Oak Crest residents generously donated $110,000 to this year’s Student Scholarship Fund. Each Scholar is eligible to receive up to $20,000 over the course of their education, dependent upon their GPA and meeting specific requirements each semester. More than 700 Oak Crest residents participated in this year’s campaign.

“Our student workers acknowledge how impactful these scholarships are,” says Mark Roussey, executive director. “Thank you to all the residents who donated! These awards set our student workers up for success.”

Since 1996, the Oak Crest Student Scholarship Fund has awarded more than $3.5 million in financial aid to 1,018 student team members to help advance their collegiate careers through resident contributions.

“The Student Scholarship Fund is just one way that Oak Crest supports mission-driven team members who are eager to further their education,” notes Roussey. “We strive to make Oak Crest a great place to live and work!”
