14 Glenelg High seniors to graduate with 4-year record of perfect grades WEST COUNTY--Clarksville * Highland * Glenelg * Lisbon


June 03, 1993|By SALLY BUCKLER

Tomorrow 14 Glenelg High School seniors will graduate with excellence -- four years of perfect grades.

Dwight Bates, David Buckholtz, Jennifer Burkmar, Clint Hare, Edward Hogan, Wendy Humphries, Heather Inkman, Lori Lanier, Neil Neimi, Theresa Senn, Cheryl Seymour, Hemant Sharma, Kary Thompson and Susan Wisch all achieved the 4.0 grade point average during all four years at Glenelg.

And these aren't bookworms. They're involved in school, community and family activities. Their parents will tell you they're on the go from dawn until dusk, and their parents will help celebrate their high school graduation with pride.

Principal Jim McGregor says, "These young men and women are exceptional in character and performance. They exemplify to the fullest our school's No. 1 priority of academic excellence. They took advantage of the opportunities Glenelg High School offered them and have reached their highest potential."

Mr. McGregor cites the whole class as outstanding, not just because of its academic excellence but because "each student showed a true sense of caring about others, the school and the community."

Graduation ceremonies will be held in the Glenelg High School auditorium at 8 p.m. Friday. Seniors will distribute free tickets to family and friends. You may also call the school at 313-5528.

Plan to arrive early to get a place to park. The PTSA hosts a reception for the graduates, their families and friends after the ceremony. Members of the junior class will serve. Graduates may then enjoy a chemical-free cruise sponsored by the parents after the reception.

Congratulations to Glenelg High School's Class of 1993.


Frances Louise Day, a resident of Glenelg all her life, died of a heart attack at her home May 27. The 72-year-old Miss Day left many friends. The Rev. David Argo of the Glenelg United Methodist Church officiated at her funeral at Haight Funeral Home in Sykesville on May 30.

The Day family was among the first settlers in Howard County. Miss Day's late parents, Marvin and Carrie Day, left her a farm in Glenelg, across the street from old Providence Church, which is now Tatiana's.

Miss Day sold part of the farm, and the developed property is now called the Heritage. One of its streets is named Day Farm Road.

She was a historian and a member of the Howard County Historical Society, and enjoyed taking pictures of buildings and events in Western Howard County. She knew that her snapshots would help to document the changes in our area.

Miss Day's interest in the people of the neighborhood was

evident in the neighborhood column about Glenelg she wrote for the Howard County Times.

A lifelong member of Glenelg United Methodist Church, Miss Day was known as a woman who loved children. She and her mother made hundreds of Easter baskets for local children over the years. She was a member of the Glenelg Homemakers Club, which has become a monthly lunchtime gathering. She joined friends for lunch the day before she died.

Miss Day's friend, Frances Sharp says, "Frances was a good woman. She has touched so many people that she will not soon be forgotten."

Miss Day was buried at Mount View Cemetery in Marriottsville. Remembrances may be sent to Glenelg United Methodist Church.


Mingling with the trustees and savoring the build-up to graduation was the task facing Glenelg Country School seniors on May 25. They enjoyed a formal breakfast with the headmaster and the board of trustees of the school at Tersiguel's restaurant in Ellicott City.

Owner Fernand Tersiguel is an active business education partner with the school. School founder Kingdom Gould addressed the 21 graduating seniors, and each student spoke about his education at the school and his plans for the future. Graduation will be in the school gardens June 11.


If your car, van or pickup is dirty, go over to the parking lot behind St. Louis Church in Clarksville on Saturday. The St. Louis Youth Ministry is sponsoring a free car wash -- exteriors only -- from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Donations will be accepted for the benefit of the youth ministry program. The church is at the corner of Routes 32 and 108.

The youth ministry's end-of-the-year dance is planned for Friday, June 11, from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m in the St. Louis School gym. Admission is $3 for students in grades six through 12. Come alone or bring a friend. You may purchase refreshments when you get tired of dancing to recorded music provided by a DJ.

All the activities of the St. Louis Youth Ministry are open to all. Call Chuck Wible at 531-6668.


The Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks is offering a variety of summer programs for youth in western Howard County this summer. Many of these interesting camps offer extended care.

Alison Steeble of Glenwood, a 1989 graduate of Glenelg High School, is one of two students who handled advertising and marketing for the Lake Forest College student exhibit.

History students at Lake Forest, located 30 miles north of Chicago, developed the exhibit. The students have been studying museums, libraries, and archives, under professor Michael Ebner. This exhibit marks the retirement of Eugene Hotchkiss, president of Lake Forest for the last 23 years. The exhibit was entitled "Tour de Forest: The Hotchkiss Years."
