Student: Corrie Poorman, 17, Severna Park.

Accomplishments/Interests: Corrie, a senior, was named "Best Drum Major" in the state at a recent competition at Towson State University involving about 40 bands. Corrie gives a lot of credit to the 81-member band. "I think the band deserves the award more than I do. It's the band who makes the drum major look good. The band did receive second place competing at Group Level IV, the level that has the bands with the most members."

The band is augmented by 32 members of the pompon unit.

Aside from his band activities, Corrie is a member of the National Honor Society and the Latin Club and is taking three advanced placement classes.

For two years he has refereed a basketball league in Severna Park, the Green Hornets.

Active in the Severna Park United Methodist Church youth group, Corrie and members of his church have participated in the Appalachia Service Project for the past three summers.

"We go to the Appalachian region and repair houses for less fortunate people and the elderly, usually sometime in July," he explained.

Corrie will apply to the Naval Academy.

Comment: "I feel lucky that everybody around me has always been so supportive of the things I do, friends and relatives. It's meant a lot to me."
