Assoc. Prof. Jamieson Wins $25,000 For St. Mary’s College Computer Science Program from Sheetz

News Release, St. Mary’s College of Maryland

St. Mary’s City, MD- Alan Jamieson, associate professor of computer science, recently won $25,000 to be used toward students in the computer science program at St. Mary’s College of Maryland from the gas and convenience store Sheetz through its Time Back initiative where the company connects and gives back to customers.

“It’s a great honor and a fantastic surprise to be getting this gift. The $25,000 donation to the College is going to help many computer science students for many years get to the kinds of experiences and events that these students need to further their careers,” said Jamieson. “I have so much gratitude to Sheetz and their commitment to supporting their communities, and their willingness to support the computer science program at St. Mary’s College.”

Jamieson also received an additional $2,500 to feed his students, something he does occasionally when working late in the computer science lab with students. As a third gift, Sheetz gifted Jamieson and his wife, Lindsay Jamieson, also an associate professor of computer science at St. Mary’s College, with a trip to London to take a master class in tea making with the option to cash out and use the money for tea farming research.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
