ROMANCZYK PICKED FOR HOSPITAL BOARD

Rose Romanczyk of Severn, president of Harbor Hospital Center's Auxiliary, was recently appointed to the Maryland Association of Hospital Auxiliaries' Executive Board. She is the first HHC representative to sit on this board.

A retired nurse at HHC, Romanczyk will chair the association's committee on health career programs. She has been active in the Harbor Hospital Center Auxilary for the past nine years, serving five years as president.

ST. JOHN'S PAIR WIN NEH GRANT

Two instructors, Joe Sachs and Howard Fisher, or tutors as they are known at St. John's College in Annapolis, are the first recipients of a $500,000 challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The grant must be matched by $2 million in private funds by 1992. To date, about $1 million has been raised.

Fisher, who is studying 19th century natural philospher Michael Faraday's work on electricity and magnatism, holds the chair on modern thought. Sachs, who is working on a new translation of Aristotle's "Physics," holds the chair on ancient, medieval and renaissance thought.

The teaching loads of both have been reduced to one-third their normal schedule.
