Buchanan & Edwards Presents 2014 Cynthia Earley Educational Foundation Scholarships at 23rd Annual Great Chesapeake Bay Swim
June 2014 – Bay Bridge Marina, MD
Buchanan & Edwards (BE) is proud to announce its sponsorship of the Cynthia Earley Educational Foundation (CEEF) for the fourth consecutive year. CEEF selected Buchanan & Edwards as the presenting sponsor of the Cynthia Earley Scholarship Award at the 23rd Annual Great Chesapeake Bay Swim (GCBS). The 2014 event was held on Sunday, June 8th at the Bay Bridge Marina on the eastern shore of Maryland. Over 80 eligible student athletes participated in either the 1 or 4.4 mile swim events. The GCBS fundraises for the Maryland Chapter of the March of Dimes and Chesapeake Bay Trust. BE’s CFO Carter Wood presented the CEEF scholarship, recognizing the student athlete who raised the most funds for these charities, to Logan Smith. Smith, a 17-year-old from Arnold, MD, raised over $570 for GCBS charities and is a recent high school graduate planning to study engineering in college. Smith is also the younger brother of past winner, Taylor Smith. The Earley family, including BE employee Darren Earley, founded CEEF to commemorate the life of their mother who was passionate about youth, education and leadership. BE shares the same ideals through its career internship program. BE recruits students and graduates with the goal of supporting their professional and educational goals in addition to supporting charitable organizations and the community.
