  • | Schools and Education
    - Each year, college students and parents are required to file a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). This application is required in order to receive any federal, state and in most cases institutional grants, scholarships and student loans.

    Even though there are priority deadlines, schools continue to accept and process the FAFSA throughout the school year. Federal aid does not have a deadline until the end of the academic year. However, there are deadlines for state and institutional funds. Even with the state scholarships, there are times when additional funds are made available and late awards are made.

    “Summer is a great time for students to be using the next couple of months to search for private scholarships,” stated Cissy VanSickle, Director of Financial Aid at Garrett College. “It is important to note that one should never pay for a scholarship search, a scholarship application, or help in filling out a FAFSA.”

    The Garrett College website provides a list of helpful links for students and parents to find information on various scholarships and scholarship search engines, including http://www.studentaid.ed.gov and http://www.fastweb.com. “Even if a student is not attending Garrett College, the Financial Aid Office will be more than happy to answer general questions,” VanSickle said. “Students who will graduate in 2017 will experience some changes in federal aid and the deadlines. We will announce that information early this school year, so students and parents are aware.”

    For general questions or for more information about financial aid, contact the Garrett College Financial Aid Office at 301-387-3080 or visit http://www.garrettcollege.edu/payingforeducation/financialaid/scholarships.

    Completion of this Concealed Firearms Permit class, prepares students to apply for a Non-Resident Utah Concealed Firearm Permit which is honored in 35 states. It does not include Maryland. Those who travel throughout the United States and wish to be permitted to carry a concealed handgun may be interested in this training.

    This 6-hour class covers all aspects and requirements for safe firearm use that is required by the state of Utah. Participants in the class must also pass a criminal background check in order to obtain a permit. Utah application will be completed during the class and reviewed for completion. Photographs and fingerprinting will be done during the class at no additional cost. Please note that if your home state issues a concealed carry permit, you need to provide a copy of that permit to obtain your Utah permit. This does not apply to Maryland residents—unless you currently have a permit.

    The class is taught by Rick Sivic Sr., Boston Hill Training, who is certified by the Utah Bureau of Criminal Identification (BCI), a Maryland State Police Qualified Handgun Instructor and an NRA certified firearms instructor.

  • - Garrett College Continuing Education and Workforce Development will be offering a puppy training and a basic obedience training at the Garrett College Career Technology Training Center in Accident.

    The puppy training is scheduled on Wednesdays, August 3 - 31, 6:30- 7:15 p.m. for dogs 10 weeks to 5 months old. Start your new pet off on the right paw with this five-week puppy training class that encourages and reinforces good behavior. This professional pet training course will work with the natural instinct of puppies to stay near their pet parents, teaching potentially life-saving cues to help with those first months of life. Simple cues such as sit, come and stay will be taught. Basic manners, socialization, and intro to loose-leash walking will also be taught.

    The basic obedience training will be held on Wednesdays, August 3 - 31, 7:30- 8:15 p.m. This course is for dogs 5 months & up with no previous training. This five-week course gives pets a solid foundation of basic behaviors. Untrained adolescent and adult dogs can become easily distracted by their environment, which is why this class focuses on important impulse-control exercises. Some cues taught sit, stay, down, wait, and leave it. Basic house manners, problem solving, and loose leash walking will also be discussed.

    Both courses are being taught by Debbie Daniels. She grew up around animals, worked in a vet hospital for year, and now is the owner of her own business, Your Happy Tails, LLC, located in Garrett County. In addition to the courses listed above, further courses are being planned to include the following: Pet Emergency Preparedness and Pet First Aid & CPR for Small and Large Pets and Canine Massage, both being taught by Daniels.
    Intermediate/Advanced Obedience Training and Trick Training for Dogs is being instructed by local resident, Barbara Glover. From a very early age, Glover has always had a passion for working with dogs, not just having pets, but for what she could teach them to do. She has trained dogs to compete in obedience, agility, rally, dock diving and some field work.

    For additional information on this course, persons may contact Terry Beachy, Program Coordinator, by calling 301-895-4700 or terry.beachy@garrettcollege.edu. To register for this course, contact Garrett College Continuing Education and Workforce Development at 301-387-3069.

  • - The third and final session of the Mountain Maryland Writers’ Institute will be held Friday evening, Saturday, and Sunday morning, August 5-7, 2016, on the McHenry campus of Garrett College and at nearby New Germany State Park. “Poetry, Screen, Stage and Mystery” is the theme for the final session and will be facilitated by noted poet Jack DuBose, playwright Ty DeMartino, and mystery writer Lauren Carr.

    Poet Jack DuBose teaches English at Garrett College. His poems have been published in a number of journals including Grease and Tears, Ginseng and Kestrel. Several topics to be covered during DuBose’s sessions include the following: ‘where to start your poetry and where to get your ideas’, ‘why should we read poetry’, ‘why read the old stuff’, and ‘publishing work if that is a goal for you.’

    Ty DeMartino is a produced screenwriter and award-winning playwright whose works have appeared on stages on both coasts. In 2007, DeMartino was named Playwright of the Year in the Baltimore City Paper’s “Best Of” edition for his political drama “The Blessed Mothers of War.” DeMartino’s sessions will touch upon “Why write a screenplay or play instead of a book or blog or interpretive dance?” He will also discuss “Exploring little tricks to crafting natural-sounding and believable dialogue for your characters” and “So how do you get your work from the page onto the stage or screen?”

    Lauren Carr is the international best-seller author of the Mac Faraday, Lovers in Crime, and Thorny Rose Mysteries. Her latest best seller, Kill and Run, was released to rave reviews in September 2015. Carr’s sessions include an investigation of “How Do You Like Your Mystery? -- An exploration of the various categories of the mystery genre,” “How to Plot a Murder (mystery) – Plotting the murder, selecting your victim, your suspects, planting clues, red herrings, and revealing who done it”, and “Creating Conflict and Suspense – defining the difference between conflict and suspense and how to use them to make your writing thrilling to readers.”

    The session facilitators will hold a book signing and open discussion forum for the general public from 7:30pm until 9pm on Saturday, August 6 at the Garrett College Auditorium on the main campus in McHenry.

    Organized by Garrett College’s Center for Adventure and Experiential Learning, registration for this event is open through Wednesday, August 3, 2016. Interested persons may contact Garrett College at 301-387-3330 or email avs@garrettcollege.edu.
