4 Glenelg seniors are semifinalists in National Merit Scholarship


September 29, 1994|By SALLY BUCKLER

Four Glenelg High School seniors have been named National Merit Scholarship semifinalists.

Congratulations to Kristen Binck, Lia Dean, Emily Gault and Emily Reinke, who will continue in the 1995 National Merit Program. These successful students are now completing essays, collecting recommendations and preparing for an intense screening that will decide which students become finalists in this distinguished scholarship program.

The National Merit Program named 11 Glenelg seniors as commended students. William Bradbury, Rebecca Christensen, Wesley Curtis, Marla Dubin, James Finnigan, Nicole Mechaly, Marissa Miller, Carrie Mills, Joshua Ring, Brian Schmitt and Amanda Snyder are among the top 5 percent of more than a million students who entered the 1995 National Merit Program by taking the 1993 Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test.

At Glenelg High this year, the students' names may appear on a three-tiered honor roll. Students with all A's will be named on the Gold or Principal's list. The Silver list will have the names of students achieving all A's and B's. Students with A's, B's, one C, and a B average will be named on the Bronze list.

All honor roll achievers will receive gifts and discount coupons this year. Principal Jim McGregor and assistant principals Addie Kaufman and Linda Wise encourage all Glenelg students to set a goal of making the honor roll.

Mr. McGregor, Ms. Wise, and Ms. Kaufman have met with students in all the English classes to discuss the school goals and rules. As part of a well-rounded education, they hope all Glenelg students will take part in the clubs and activities the school offers.

Glenelg's homecoming is Oct. 8. The wonderful parade of floats, with the full marching unit leading, will begin in front of the school at 12:30 p.m. The football game against Mount Hebron begins at 1:30 p.m. At 8 p.m., a homecoming dance sponsored by the Student Government Association gets started.


Mark your calendar for Oct. 22. That is the day the Therapeutic and Recreational Riding Center will dedicate the Barbara Porter Indoor Riding Pavilion.

This is the first major building for the center at its new site on Shady Lane in Glenwood. County Executive Charles I. Ecker will deliver the keynote speech at the dedication at 4 p.m. Brig. Gen. Donald L. Scott, director of the National Civilian Community Corps, also will speak.

A bring-your-own-food family picnic at 5 p.m. will precede a concert at 6:30 p.m. The center will provide beverages and desserts. The concert will feature Nashville recording artist Aspen Taylor, a Glenelg High School graduate who once rode at the center.

She will sing songs from her latest album. The Pure Country

Band and the County Line Mavericks Western Line Dancers will perform. Boots, spurs and Stetsons are welcome.

Tickets for the entire event are $30 per couple with their children, or $15 per person. Call 489-5100.


Whether you call it basketball or hoops, the season for playing this popular sport is just around the corner. The Western Howard County Youth Basketball League opened fall registration for players last week and will accept applications until Oct. 15. There are openings in most age groups for boys and girls. If your child registered last spring, you need not register again.

This league has a large girls division, testimony to the league's belief that girls are first-rate in sports. Boys and girls ages 6 to 17 may register. To receive a registration form, call (301) 854-5403 and leave a message.

Tryouts for traveling teams for

the Youth Basketball program are in progress. If your child would like to play on a traveling team, call Pat Nolan at 442-5698. There are traveling teams for ages 9 through 14.


For those who love competitive shooting and a festive time with friends, there are the Dayton Rod and Gun Club's Sunday afternoon fall turkey and ham shoots.

Beginning at 1 p.m. Sunday and continuing through Dec. 4, competitors will take aim for $2.50 per shoot. Winners will carry home turkeys and hams. Friends can watch and enjoy refreshments like hamburgers, hot dogs, soup, coffee and soft drinks for sale at the club.

It's a social afternoon, and admission is free.

The Dayton Rod and Gun Club is off Greenbridge Road, between Triadelphia Mill Road and Ten Oaks Road in Dayton. For more information, call Paul Brown at 531-3238.


Parents of toddlers may still register their children at the Lisbon Children's Christian Care Center. The school has space for 2- and 3-year-olds. A full-day day care program is available for both age groups.

Three-year-olds attend for day care and for nursery school Tuesday and Thursday mornings. You can elect to send your child for only the nursery school program.

The school also is accepting applications for a teacher for the

2-year-old class.

Prospective teachers must have a degree in early childhood education. The school is at the Lisbon United Methodist Church on Route 144, next to the Lisbon Elementary School.
