October 02, 1992|By KATHY SUTPHIN

South Carroll High School's gala 25th Homecoming celebration will take place next week, and time is running out for event organizers to locate former homecoming queens to take part in the festivities.

Although the school has all the maiden names of the queens, the married names, addresses and phone numbers of 24 women remain a mystery.

If you have any information, please contact South Carroll's Student Government adviser, Penny Averill, during school hours at (410) 795-8500.

The former South Carroll homecoming queens will ride on a float from the school parking lot to the football stadium in the parade on Oct. 9, said Mrs. Averill, who has been an English teacher at the school for the past 10 years.

The parade, which precedes the 7:30 p.m. varsity football game against Linganore High School, will begin at about 6:30 p.m.

"South Carroll through the Years -- a Silver Celebration" is the theme for this year's homecoming activities. School spirit week begins Monday. A pep rally will be held during school hours Friday.

The traditional Powder Puff Football game between junior and senior girls will take place on Saturday morning. The grand finale of the week will be the Student Homecoming Dance in the school gymnasium Saturday evening.


Ten-year-old Charles Paisie reigns supreme as the button champ at Mount Airy Elementary School.

Charles, a student in Jake Barkett's fifth-grade class, had the opportunity to show off his remarkable button collection when the school celebrated Button Day on Sept. 24.

Charles began collecting buttons in kindergarten, and his collection numbers more than 200. His goal is to get a button from all 50 states. He is the son of John and Debby Paisie of Mount Airy.


Congratulations to Stewart I. Rodgers, who paved the way for the rank of Eagle Scout with a 75-foot bridge.

Mr. Rodgers received his Eagle Scout award during a ceremony on Sept. 27 at the Mount Airy Latter Day Saints Chapel. The 1992 graduate of South Carroll High School is a member of Boy Scout Troop 622 of Mount Airy. He is the son of Sigrid and Rodney Rodgers of New Windsor.

Mr. Rodgers, 18, fulfilled the last requirement for his Eagle Scout rank by organizing a work crew of about 60 students and parents to replace a 10-foot bridge across a stream and wetlands behind South Carroll High School.

The project was suggested by South Carroll's award-winning science teacher, Robert Foor-Hogue, said Mr. Rodgers. He said a 75-foot bridge was needed to protect the flow of water and the stream, which has been targeted for trout restoration. The project was completed during an in-school field trip on May 28.

Mr. Rodgers, who will soon begin basic training in the U.S. Army Reserve, plans to attend the University of Maryland at College Park next fall.
