Wesley College in Dover, Del. has presented a special award to Wendy Rice, of Crofton for her work in STORM Aid (Students Together Offering Resources and Manpower) in Homestead, Fla. The project included 32 students and three college staff members who devoted their fall break, Oct. 8-13, to Hurricane Andrew relief work in Florida.

The group raised the money for the trip through grants from student organizations, raffles and donations from Dover businesses. The students worked with relief agencies, churches, Florida Southern College students and storm victims. Their duties included cleaning up debris, setting up tents for other volunteers, planting trees, and unloading and restocking canned food supplies.

U.S. Sen. William V. Roth Jr., R-Del., has nominated the project for a Points of Light Foundation Award. Wendy is the daughter of Winnie and Warren Rice.
