Dell Family PathwayThe Dell Family Pathway, named in honor of Trustee Samuel M. Dell, III, and his family, is open for students, faculty, staff, and other members of the Stevenson community to commute on foot between Owings Mills and Owings Mills North.

The wooden pedestrian bridge, which crosses the Gwynns Falls Floodplain and environmental areas, is 586 feet long and 12 feet wide, and rises at one point to a height of 25 feet. The bridge features extensive lighting, blue emergency phones that connect directly to Campus Security, and two viewing platforms.

The two ends can be found past the sand volleyball courts on Owings Mills and in the parking lot adjacent to the Manning Academic Center on Owings Mills North. For a quick view of what it will be like to cross the pathway, click here.

Corey Ott

Campus Compact announced that Stevenson junior Cory Ott is one of two students nationwide to earn a full scholarship to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute’s Leadership and the American Presidency (LATP) program for Fall 2017.

“I feel incredibly honored to be rewarded this scholarship and opportunity. I am looking forward to meeting other peer leaders from around the country and learning from elected officials in D.C.”

Ott was recently named a Campus Compact 2017 Newman Civic Fellow for his demonstrated commitment in finding solutions for challenges facing communities throughout the country. Each year, Campus Compact collaborates with the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute to provide scholarships to Newman Civic Fellows for the institute’s LATP program, aimed at developing the next generation of citizen leaders.

“I feel incredibly honored to be rewarded this scholarship and opportunity,” said Ott, a native of Bordentown, NJ. “I am looking forward to meeting other peer leaders from around the country and learning from elected officials in Washington, D.C. Everyone is going to be coming from very different backgrounds, so I am interested in listening to everyone’s story.”

Ott is extensively involved on campus, holding many leadership positions. As Director of Philanthropy for the University’s Student Government Association, Ott works tirelessly to combat the issues of hunger, illness, and pollution in the Baltimore area. Ott is a member of Relay for Life and the University’s Mission: I’m Home organization that works to rebuild and repair homes damaged or destroyed by natural disasters.

Ott will spend the Fall 2017 semester in the nation’s capital. During his time in Washington, D.C., Ott will hear from real leaders in the fields of business, government, and the nonprofit sectors. He will learn lessons on leadership, while simultaneously applying all of these skills in the real world and in authentic course assignments.
