Student gets perfect score in math contest a 5th time

This year's conclusion to the county high schools' math competition at Anne Arundel Community College featured Severna Park's Adam Meyerson finishing with his fifth consecutive perfect score of 30 points.

This is believed to be the first time this has been accomplished since the college began sponsoring the competition in the early 1970s, according to competition director and college math instructor Cathy Hess.

Individually, students compete in a one-hour test in which a perfect score is 6.

A school's team score is compiled by adding the average of its three top-scoring individuals.

Steven Albert of Severna Park High and Anthony Sawyer of Chesapeake turned in perfect scores for the individual competition for the fifth round. Steven's perfect score earned him an award for the most improved individual over last year.

Seven students received a 5 out of the possible 6 points.

They were Mike Morton of Annapolis High, Scott Wolford of Arundel; Chris Kwak of Meade; Bill Harrison of Northeast; Mike Doh of Severn; Jon Hsieh of Severna Park; and David Price of St. Mary's.

More than 100 students representing 14 area schools participated in the fifth and final round of this year's competition.

The final standings for the year, based on all five meetings, had Severna Park first with 48.33 points; Meade, 43; Annapolis, 42.33; South River, 38; Arundel, 37; Glen Burnie, 35; Northeast, 34; Chesapeake and Key, 29; North County, 26.33; St. Mary's, 24; Severn, 23.67; Broadneck, 17.33; and Southern, 11.33.

2 area students win vocational awards

Jennifer Bell of Severn and Thanh Vo of Odenton, second-year students at the Center of Applied Technology North, recently won first place awards in the Maryland State Championships of the Vocational Industrial Clubs of America.

Both students will graduate this spring with a licensed practical nursing degree and will be attending the national competition in Kentucky June 21-26.

Jennifer won top honors by demonstrating the insertion of naso-gastric tube in the job skill demonstrations, and Thanh took first place in the general licensed practical nurse station category.
