JORDAN BLEVINS, 11,

April 12, 1993

JORDAN BLEVINS, 11, son of Lisa and Ralph Blevins of Bachman Valley Drive in Westminster.

School: Fifth-grader at William Winchester Elementary School.

Honored for: Being among the students selected to sing in the Carroll County Children's Chorus concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Trinity Lutheran Church in Taneytown.

Jordan has played piano for four years and bass clarinet for two years. He will be in his school's fifth-grade musical in May.

He plays baseball in the spring, soccer in the fall and basketball in the winter.

Goals: To be either a journalist or a baseball player.

Comments: Fitting all his activities into the week is sometimes difficult, Jordan said.

"A lot of the time, I don't eat dinner until 8 o'clock," he said. "I've thought of quitting both my instruments, but I never actually did that." He said his mother urged him not to quit piano, and he's glad she did.

"I thought of dropping piano because of all the practicing. I hate practicing. I'll go out there and play the real thing, but I hate practicing."
