February 14, 1993

Linda Siegel, of Bel Air, was recently nominated as one of Maryland's "Most Valuable Persons" in the field of employment and training.

Ms. Siegel is the in-school training coordinator for the Susquehanna Region Private Industry Council.

Her primary assignment is "Maryland's Tomorrow," a drop-out prevention program established in 1988 by the Maryland General Assembly. Ms. Siegel works with students, faculty and administrators in eight schools, six in Harford County and two in Cecil County. The program has 324 students in grades nine through 12.

Mr. Siegel was cited for her selfless dedication and commitment as well as her willingness to go well beyond the "normal" level of effort on behalf of the Maryland's Tomorrow students.

In this area "Maryland's Tomorrow" is sponsored jointly by the boards of education in Harford and Cecil counties and the Susquehanna Region Private Industry Council. Through the program, students at risk of dropping out work with teacher-mentors to enhance their basic skills and increase their motivation.
