Beltway Companies recently held its fifth annual golf tournament for the company’s Endowed Scholarship Fund to benefit St. Mary’s College of Maryland at the Rolling Road Golf Club in Catonsville, Md.

The event raised more than $40,000 thanks to 96 golfers and contributions from more than 20 sponsors.

“Our golf outing helps us provide college students with the opportunity to build successful careers in the commercial truck transportation industry,” says Jack C. Saum, Beltway Companies Dealer Principal. “We invest in developing our interns and employees because we are committed to building a vibrant business that contributes to a vibrant community.”

Saum and his wife, Jeanne, established the Endowed Scholarship Fund as part of their commitment to corporate social responsibility. They are both graduates of St. Mary’s College. In just five years, the scholarship fund has received more than $190,000 in contributions. This fund is part of St. Mary’s College’s Baltimore City Scholarship Initiative which helps companies create their own scholarship, internship and mentoring program for deserving students.

St. Mary’s College rising third-year students who are in good academic standing and have financial need are eligible to apply for the two-year, $5,000 (minimum) gap scholarship. Scholarship recipients are also eligible for a paid internship during the summer at one of the 10 Beltway dealership locations in Maryland. The scholarship is renewable for two, one-year terms for students who remain in good academic standing. Selection preference is given to students who either graduated from a Baltimore City public school or students with related family members who work in the commercial trucking and transportation industry.
