The Odenton Kiwanis Club has given Waugh Chapel Elementary School the Odenton Kiwanis Beautification Award. The club judged five area schools on neatness and appearance of school grounds. Many thanks go to Todd Combs, chairman of the building and grounds committee, and the parents who put in the hours each weekend at the school. Thanks also go to the Webelo Shark Patrol from Boy Scout Troop 769, Brownie Troop 428, Junior Girl Scout Troop 635, and to the students and parents who helped clean up the school grounds on Beautification Day. The donations of trees, plants and shrubbery from parents and businesses are very much appreciated.
