MICHELE PATTON, 17, daughter of Carole and Ronald Patton of Sykesville.

School: Senior at South Carroll High School.

Honored for: Working hard to recover from a knee injury and reconstructive surgery last year. After sitting out last season, she was captain of the Varsity soccer team this year. She also has helped her father, a Baltimore County police officer, with safety-awareness programs for the elderly.

Comments: "I had to reteach my leg to do everything. I couldn't even get into the shower by myself. It made me realize what physical abilities I have. I shouldn't take them for granted. It made me think about handicapped people and the difficulty they have day in and day out."
