    Free Webinar
    Thursday, February 5th
    2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


    Maryland policy makers have been studying ways to safely unlock natural gas in Western Maryland, where a portion of the Marcellus Shale is located. Potential gas production in Western Allegany and Garrett Counties would result in fiscal and economic impacts on the state and the residents of the affected region.


    For this webinar, the guest speaker, Susan Steward, an economist with the Regional Economic Studies Institute of Towson University, will discuss an impact analysis conducted by the institute on future gas production in Maryland. She will explore the implications for economic output, jobs and wages, state and local tax revenues, and property and land values. She will also describe how RESI combined the traditional econometric approach and the REMI PI+ model to produce a comprehensive outlook.

  • Debunking Myths about Financial Aid | 6:00pm - 9:00pm | Schools and Education
    Posted by SD Nelson Mrkg Solutions

    Debunking Myths about Financial Aid - Debunking Myths about Financial Aid, GC Offers Financial Assistance

    College Goal Maryland, a free event for everyone interested in getting answers and assistance with the financial aid process will be held at Garrett College on Thursday, February 5 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in Room 205 in the Continuing Education building at the McHenry campus. In addition to receiving personalized one-on-one help with filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), participants may enter to win one of two $500 College Goal Scholarships that can be used at any college or university. Maryland requires a processing deadline date of March 1 for the FAFSA.

    “With the right help, the FAFSA can be completed in 15 to 20 minutes. Each line in the income section is mapped to a line on the IRS form. Estimated results are immediate,” says Cissy VanSickle, Director of Financial Aid at Garrett College. “Finding the funding for a college education is often the first hurdle of earning the degree or certificate that the student is striving for. Our financial aid counselors attend regular training sessions so they can be equipped to help all applicants get the greatest amount possible to defray college expenses and to dispel some of the widespread myths about financial aid.”

    Don’t fall for these myths about Financial Aid, provided by http://www.studentaid.ed.gov.
    “I’m not going to bother filling out the FAFSA because…”

    Myth #1: “My parents make too much money, so I won’t qualify for aid.”

    Reality: There is no income cut-off to qualify for federal student aid. Many factors besides income- from the size of your family to the age of your older parent – are taken into account. Your eligibility is determined by a mathematical formula, not by your parents’ income alone. Always remember, when you fill out the FAFSA, you’re also automatically applying for funds from your state, and possibly from your school as well. In fact, some schools won’t even consider you for any of their scholarships (including academic scholarships) until you’ve submitted a FAFSA. Don’t make assumptions about what you’ll get – fill out the application and find out for yourself.

    Myth #2: “Only students with good grades get financial aid.”

    Reality: While a high grade point average will help a student get into a good school and may help with academic scholarships, most of the federal student aid programs do not take a student’s grades into consideration. Provided a student maintains satisfactory academic progress in his or her program of study, federal student aid will help a student with an average academic record complete his or her education.

    Myth #3: “I’m too old to get financial aid.”

    Reality: Funds from federal student aid programs are awarded on the basis of financial need, not on the basis of age. Adult students can get financial aid, so be sure to fill out the FAFSA.

    Myth #4: “The FAFSA is too hard to fill out.”

    Reality: Most colleges require only the FAFSA in order to apply for assistance. Much of the information needed to fill out the FAFSA is found on family tax returns. On the 2015-2016 FAFSA students and parents are urged to use the new IRS Data Retrieval Tool that automatically pulls information from the IRS tax return and places the information in the correct FAFSA fields. In addition to the form's directions there is also online and telephone support available. The FAFSA can be filled out online and saved for future reference.

    Remember, College Goal Maryland at Garrett College is open to all students and families regardless as to what college they are applying to. All of our Financial Aid Representatives will be available for one-on-one assistance in filling out the FAFSA for students and families.

    More information is available by contacting VanSickle in the Garrett College Financial Aid Office at 301-387-3083 or cissy.vansickle@garrettcollege.edu.To register in advance for the College Goal Maryland event, persons may visit http://www.studentaid.ed.gov.


    PHOTO CUTLINE:

    The Financial Aid office at Garrett College is ready to assist anyone who is interested in applying for financial aid this year by filling out the FAFSA on College Goal Maryland, Thursday, February 5 from 6 pm to 9pm in Room 205 located in the Continuing Education building on the McHenry campus. From left to right are Cissy VanSickle, Director of Financial Aid, Pamela Warnick, Assistant Director of Financial Aid, Andrew Harvey, Financial Aid Counselor, and Kathy Fauber, Financial Aid/Veterans Affairs Counselor.

  • Frack Free Maryland: A Call to Action! | Evening | Special Interest, Fracking, City Place, Frostburg,
    Frack Free Maryland: A Call to Action! - Join us at City Place in Frostburg, MD on February 7, 2015 from 5PM until 9:30PM for a FREE event where we will educate our community about the possibility, and the possible negative effects, of natural gas development in Western Maryland.

    There will be speakers from areas in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia whose communities and homes have already been affected by the incursions of the natural gas industry, as well as local speakers and representatives from many local and regional organizations already working against fracking in Western Maryland. Also, find out about the latest efforts to pass a law in the Maryland General Assembly to prevent fracking in the Free State. The legislation is supported, for the first time, by every major national, regional, and state environmental organization — more than 60 overall, including Food & Water Watch, Physicians for Social Responsibility, Chesapeake Climate Action Network, and Sierra Club; new sign-ons are occurring daily. Many of these organizations will be tabling information about their work and accepting donations for the continuation of that work, with representatives present to talk with anyone looking to get involved.

    In addition, local band Jon Felton and the Soulmobile will be playing a show at the end of the evening in support of this cause. The event is totally FREE, and there will be BBQ pork sandwiches, made possible by a gracious donation from Backbone Food Farm in Oakland, MD, available during the dinner/potluck portion of the evening, and folks are encouraged to bring along a side dish to share with the community, as well as their own utensils and plates to cut down on potential waste.

    Please come out and show your support for the fight against fracking in Western Maryland, as well as the fight for our homes, our families, our waters, and our collective futures.

    More information can be found on Facebook with a search for “Frack Free Maryland: A Call to Action!” and on the websites of every major organization in the state fighting to Keep Maryland Frack Free.
