TROY MEYERS, 20, son of George and Margaret Meyers of Bertie Avenue in Westminster.

School: Sophomore at Carroll Community College; 1991 graduate of Westminster High School.

Honored for: Being appointed by college President Joseph Shields as the college's first representative to the Student Advisory Council of the Maryland Higher Education Commission.

The council includes one representative from each college and university in the state.

Carroll Community College was not represented before because was a branch campus of Catonsville Community College until it gained independence in July.

Mr. Meyers also is president of the college's student government and a student representative to the college's board of trustees.

Goals: "I want to transfer to Towson [State University] to get my degree in teacher education."

Mr. Meyers would like to teach physical education.

Comments: "The college is growing very fast. This year we're trying to set a lot of trends," he said of the student government board.

Mr. Meyers said he and others who represent community colleges on the statewide council are concerned about making it easier for students to transfer credits from one school to another.
