CSM Scholarship Gets Boost
from Grandson's Birthday
 
Eight-year-old Evan Walsh Gurklis asked his birthday guests to donate to the Charles K. Walsh Memorial Scholarship at CSM instead of bringing gifts.
 
The scholarship was established in 2016 to honor Evan's "Paw Paw," a much-loved grandfather and a much-loved, longtime educator in Southern Maryland who passed away in April 2016 and would have celebrated his 77th birthday this February.
 
Evan's friends responded with enthusiasm to his request, with $300 given for Evan to gift to his grandfather's memorial scholarship.
