The Carroll County Sun regrets the error.
Learning about AIDS
The Carroll County public schools are having two public screenings of "Teen AIDS in Focus," a video under consideration for use in the ninth-grade health program.
Community input is being sought to help school board members make a decision about the tape at their meeting in July 15.
FOR THE RECORD - CORRECTION
Screenings are at 3 p.m. today and 7:30 p.m. Monday. People who are unable to attend but would like information on the tape may contact Marjorie Lohnes, supervisor of home economics and health for the school system. Information: 848-8280, Ext. 3219.
Brightening the walls
Sharon Schaeffer's art students at Westminster High have completed a 50-foot mural for the Westminster Nursing and Convalescent Center.
The month-long project employed about 20 sophomores, juniors and seniors. A folk art country landscape was painted on two walls, and a farm scene was completed on the third.
Myers earns award
Recent Francis Scott Key High School graduate Michael A. Myers Jr. received the Outstanding Carroll County Vo-Tech Automotive Student Award this year.
The award, presented in honor of Kay and Ray Hollinger of Davis Buick-GMC Truck, is given to a graduate who demonstrates skill in the auto mechanics, has a high grade average, good attendance and participates in community affairs.
Myers, who completed the diesel technician program, works for RMS Co. and plans to attend the Denver Automotive and Diesel College in Colorado.
