David Mallonee, a Hamel Scholar, graduated from Huntington High School and is Superintendent Stephen Wahls’ stepson. He stands 6 feet tall, weighs 180 lbs., and played the Lacrosse “attack”
position for 8 years; he loves to fish, hunt, and build custom aquariums.
David lives in Huntington, Maryland, to attend the College of Southern Maryland. He is a full-time student and works locally full-time at Bayside Auto Group. He plans to earn his A.A.S. degree in Business Administration and transfer to a university to receive his bachelor’s degree in business.
But that’s not all.
David is considering medical school to study anesthesiology, a medical specialty practiced by physicians specializing in anesthesia, pain management, and critical care medicine. To help him figure out his interest in this medical area, David plans to obtain an internship at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, following anesthesiologist Aaron Zuckerberg, MD. This internship is crucial because it could present David with opportunities to learn new skills, gain technical knowledge within the medical industry, and learn how to interact with professionals in the hospital setting. More importantly, it will allow him to decide what to major in while in college or explore other potential career paths within the industry.
The financial support offered by the Ed and Fern Hamel Scholarship allows David the flexibility to grow and adjust career goals as he learns, something not all students can afford to do during their university experience.
