At Howard Community College, the concept of friendliness and personal attention permeates every aspect of the school life. It is all oriented toward the needs of the individual student.
Over the years, Carl Strobel has enjoyed numerous letters from Howard Community College students who have benefitted from the scholarship he provides.

“It’s typical to hear that they are the first in their family to go to college,” he said. “It’s nice helping students who want to strive.”

The Kenneth Strobel Scholarship, named after Strobel’s late son, is a way for the 81-year-old owner of FiberPlus, Inc. to support the college, which he calls “impressive” and a “wonderful organization to be part of and help.”

A retired commander of the U.S. Navy, Strobel continues to work as owner and chairman of the board of his Howard County based fiber optics company, which has done the wiring for several HCC buildings. The company has a named space in the school’s new Science, Engineering, and Technology Building, and Strobel attends HCC fundraising efforts such as the Silas Craft Collegians Dinner.

He has a strong affection for the college and its culture, “At Howard Community College, the concept of friendliness and personal attention permeates every aspect of the school life,” he said. “It is all oriented toward the needs of the individual student.”
