Caryn Studham, 17, of Old Mill High School

School Interests: Caryn, a member of the National Honor Society since grade 10, is the senior class treasurer and president of the foreign language club.

For two years, she has been on her school's team on "It's Academic," the WJZ scholastic quiz show. Although the team has not won recently, she says it did "improve a lot this year."

She also has participated in the Johns Hopkins Academic Bowl at the Johns Hopkins University, a daylong scholastic quiz contest that includes students from Maryland and neighboring states.

Long active in the Future Business Leaders of America Club, Caryn served as vice president of the club last year and in 10th grade was part of a team that won a state-level entrepreneur contest and a trip to Chicago for the national competition.

In 10th grade she earned a varsity letter as a member of the Old Mill Dance Company.

Community Interests: Caryn and her family are members of the Harundale Presbyterian Church in Glen Burnie where she is active in the youth group.

She has participated in several homebuilding and remodeling ventures conducted by Habitat for Humanity in Georgia and western Pennsylvania.

Future Plans: Caryn studied French for five years and is learning German, which she hopes will help her in a foreign studies program. She has applied to women's colleges with international studies programs.

"I've always been interested in world affairs. When I took a class in international studies, I knew for sure that I wanted to do something."

She has received more than $30,000 worth of scholarships and has been accepted at Randolph-Macon College in Virginia and Hood College in Frederick. She says she is leaning toward Randolph-Macon because it has a sister college in England, the University of Reading, where she could take courses.

Her goal is to be an ambassador.
