Scholar-actor Crowe is Student of the Month

Richard "Chip" Crowe, who will play Kapos in South Carroll High School's production of "Playing for Time," was chosen Student of the Month for September.

He is "the strong silent type who has the ability to remain cool under stress," said Mike Hoover, English teacher and drama coach. "His readiness to accept challenges is only exceeded by his diligence to do his best with the task at hand."

The son of Richard and Barbara Crowe of Eldersburg, Chip is a member of the National Honor Society and the drum line in marching and concert bands. He attended Boys State as a delegate last summer.

He plans to study mechanical engineering next fall at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, Virginia Tech or the University of Virginia.
