An ever-lengthening record of achievement and honors for students at Atholton High


January 24, 1996|By Liz Lean | Liz Lean,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

ATHOLTON HIGH SCHOOL students continue to distinguish themselves and their school with a wealth of academic and citizenship honors.

Mani Mahjouri is a semifinalist in the Coca-Cola Scholars Program, which recognizes leadership, character and achievement in school and community.

Mani also is a semifinalist in the Westinghouse Science Talent Search, as is Andrew Zachary Tropf.

They'll find out this week if they are among the 40 finalists.

Kelly Malcolm and Irene Thompson have been named National Achievement Scholars for Outstanding African-American Students.

Sara Glazer and Tara Brown are finalists in the Maryland Distinguished Scholars program.

Busy retiree

One of Longfellow's first residents, Robert Kramer, is busier than ever since retiring a year ago after a career in advertising.

His works in watercolor, acrylic, and pen and ink hang in galleries in Clarksville and Frederick, and prints of his pen-and-ink sketches of local landmarks are sold at the Columbia Welcome Center on Wincopin Circle.

The center plans a series of note cards featuring Mr. Kramer's sketches, said director Barbara Kellner.

Mr. Kramer says he draws or paints "whatever interests me." That includes locales as near as Town Center and as distant as the Netherlands.

Mr. Kramer and his wife, Nancy, have lived on Iron Pen Place since 1968. Mrs. Kramer is executive director of the Downtown Baltimore Child Care Centers.

Sons Scott and David own television production businesses in the area.

On the dean's list

Joanna Bush is off to a great start in her freshman year at Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill, making the dean's list for the fall semester.

The 1995 graduate of Wilde Lake High School at River Hill plans to study broadcast communications. Her parents are Rita and Roderick Bush of Harper's Choice.

Changes at nursery

Wilde Lake Children's Nursery, which opened in 1969 as Columbia's first cooperative nursery school, is planning changes for the 1996-1997 school year.

The school is adding a second morning each week for 2-year- olds, said Claire Femiano, who has been with the school 15 years as a parent, teacher and now director.

Ms. Femiano will lead a Tuesday-morning discussion group for parents of 2-year-olds while the children are in class.

The program for 3-year-olds will scale back to three mornings a week instead of four.

Ms. Femiano invites parents to schedule a visit with their child. Call 465-4775 or 715-0942.

The school is in the Faulkner Ridge Neighborhood Center on Marble Faun Court.

Teen rep wanted

The Harper's Choice Village Board is seeking a teen representative to take over for Robert Yorke, whose term ends this spring.

The teen representative is a voting member of the board. Applicants must be a high school sophomore or older with at least a "B" average.

Call village manager Wendy Tzuker, 730-3888.

PTA, pizza and bingo

Bryant Woods Elementary School's PTA will have free bingo from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Friday.

There is no charge for admission or bingo cards. Pizza, soda and snacks will be sold.

All prizes have been donated and will go to children in kindergarten through fifth grade.

Swansfield honors

Swansfield Elementary School has announced the new year's first Sportspersons of the Week.

From the '76ers, Anike Adedipe, Jenny Prosen and Sean Fabel were recognized for qualities that include teamwork and respect for others.

From the '49ers were Kaili Darbouze and Kyle Rand.

Adventurers Yen Lee and Heather Newman earned the award.
