By President Ashley Hale
April 1, 2023

A life member of Boring Vol. Fire Co. Mr. William C. Belt, bequeathed upon his passing, a large sum of money to the Boring Fire Company. At that time, The Boring Board of Directors, decided that the money would be marked and designated to be used for a scholarship. The funds designated for the William C. Belt Scholarship ("Scholarship") were transferred to the Upperco Vol. Fire Co., Inc., at the time of the consolidation of the Boring Fire Company and the Arcadia Fire Company on September 1, 2017. This is a restricted type of financial aid. It is only available to applicants that are members of, OR, are a resident of the Upperco Volunteer Fire Company's first due area (as defined by the Baltimore County Fire Department station assignments).
