Deborah L. Henderson chosen March employee

Deborah L. Henderson was recently selected as the Harford County Government Employee of the Month for March.

Nominated by Maureen Flickenger of the county's Procurement Office, Ms. Henderson was honored for her work on the Forest Hill Recreation Council, the Harford County Parks and Recreation Advisory Board and her coordination of a countywide holiday program for needy families.

The HCG Employee of the Month program was suggested by an employee during a County Executive Brown Bag lunch series. Individual employees, divisions, agencies and departments can be nominated by a panel of their peers.

Ivan Sohail John joins area social programs

Ivan Sohail John, a Pakistani student in his last semester at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, recently joined Forward Step, a residential care facility, and the Harford Food Bank as assistant to the director for a six-month period.

Mr. John, who has one more semester before graduation, joined Forward Step and the Harford Food Bank through the Mission Volunteer's Program of the Presbyterian Church in Louisville, Ky.

His purpose in coming to the area is to gain experience working with people and the problems of hunger. At the same time, he would also like to share his cultural and ethnic background with members of the community as well as get to know and learn from the people and church organizations in the area.

Forward Step and the Harford Food Bank are outreach ministries of the Presbyterian Church.

Constance Ross Beims honored by Girl Scouts

Constance Ross Beims of Darlington has been selected the 1993 Distinguished Woman by the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland.

Mrs. Beims, vice president and executive assistant to the president of the University of Maryland Baltimore County, was recognized for her advocacy in the areas of racial harmony, women's rights and nonviolence.

Through her involvement as executive director of the Maryland Commission for Women and as the guiding force in establishing the University of Maryland's Commission on Women, Mrs. Beims helped to open the doors for women for their inclusion at all

levels of governmental and academic decision-making.

Her accomplishments led to her widespread recognition at the Annapolis State House and her subsequent naming as the first woman to become Maryland's Appointments Officer and Deputy Chief of Staff.

As a former Girl Scout, she received the curved bar, equivalent to today's Gold Award, the highest recognition in Girl Scouting.
