Daughter of Paula and Preston Woerner...


March 28, 1994

HOLLY WOERNER, 16, daughter of Paula and Preston Woerner of Forest Hill Road in Eldersburg.

School: Junior at the Seton-Keough High School, an archdiocesan Catholic girls' school in Baltimore.

Honored for: Placing among the top six at the state finals for the Baltimore Catholic Forensics League recently at Loyola High School in Towson. The league, which includes public as well as Catholic schools, encourages the art of public speaking.

Holly, with classmate Corinne Chellis of Baltimore County, will go to the National Catholic Forensics League competition in Oshkosh, Wis., May 26-30.

The girls perform a dramatic interpretation of Marsha Norman's " 'Night Mother."

Holly plays the part of Jessie, the daughter, in the two-character play about a young woman informing her mother of her decision to commit suicide.

At school, Holly has played field hockey for three years and participated in school plays with Mount St. Joseph High School, an all-boys high school. She plays Aldonza in the coming "Man of La Mancha" and had a role in "Brigadoon" last year.

Goals: "I would like to go to a four-year college and pursue a career in communications, namely broadcasting."

Comments: "I'd like to be a news anchorwoman. I'm very interested in current events. I like to speak in front of people. I think it would be an interesting career."

She and Corinne chose " 'Night Mother" because it suited them and was one of the few two-character plays they could find.
