The First State Corvette Club presented its Rick Berry Memorial Scholarship to Joseph Hartman.
The scholarship is given in memory of Rick Berry, who passed away in 2018. It was Berry’s desire that the scholarship be awarded to someone who has displayed excellence while studying in the field of automotive technology.
While the First State Corvette Club has awarded scholarships for a number of years, with Barry’s 2018 passing, club members voted to honor him by awarding the scholarship in his memory and for the purpose he championed.
For 2019, Delaware Tech instructors and department heads selected Joseph Hartman, who just finished his first year in the automotive curriculum at Delaware Tech Owens Campus in Georgetown. Hartman has excelled in the program and looks forward to furthering his education in the field. The ceremonial $1,250 check was presented during the club’s July 3 meeting.
