The Commission was established by ordinance in 2008 by the Board of Trustees as an advisory body to the Board of Trustees. The Commission is responsible for reviewing applications for the Frederick High School Scholarship. Each year the Commission recommends two students to the Board of Trustees as recipients of the scholarship.
