Name: Allison Wentworth, 17, of Millersville.

School: Old Mill Senior High School.

Accomplishments/Interests: Throughout high school Allison has excelled academically and is ranked first in her class of about 450 students.

She is president of the National Honor Society, senior class vice president, a Student Government Association representative, captain of the varsity volleyball team, a member of the girls' varsity basketball team and a student tutor for geometry.

She was a Maryland Distinguished Scholar finalist, a National Science Scholar semifinalist and a Coca-Cola Scholarship semifinalist.

She has received college credits in English, biology and calculus after completing advanced placement tests offered by the county.

Recently voted "Most Likely To Succeed," Allison has received the Minds in Motion award and the Scholar Athlete award, given to high school students who are outstanding athletically and academically.

For the past three summers, Allison has volunteered as a teacher's aide at the Ruth P. Eason School for Handicapped Children.

Initially, she went to the school to fulfill a community service requirement for her confirmation class at St. Bernadette's Parish. But after that experience, she grew fond of the work and continues to help the children.

Allison's plans include college, medical school and a career as a pediatrician.

Comments: Allison says she "loves getting involved in a lot of activities" because "I'd never want to look back on high school and feel that I missed out on any experiences."
