Two Local Men Win Scholarship
Harry Vincent, Jr. and Chandler Thornton were selected as the 2014 recipients of the Rural Women’s Republican Club scholarship award. Harry Vincent, son of Mr. and Mrs. Scott Vincent of Darnestown and grandson of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Bauer of Barnesville, was presented the award at the club’s annual picnic on June 23 at the home of Suzette and Angelo Bizzarro. Due to a work conflict at the Heritage Foundation where he is interning for the summer, Chandler was unable to attend the ceremony. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Douglas Thornton of Frederick and grandson of Mr. and Mrs. Garland Johnson of Barnesville. Both young men wrote excellent essays entitled: “What inspired you to start your Republican journey and, in your opinion, how do you view the future of the Republican Party?”
Harry graduated this year from St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Potomac and will attend Texas Christian University (TCU) in Fort Worth this fall. Harry was instrumental in starting the Young Republicans Club at St. Andrew’s. Chandler is a senior undergraduate at American University in Washington, D.C. and currently serves as Chairman of the D.C. Federation of College Republicans Administration.
