April 18, 1996|By Sally Buckler | Sally Buckler,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

WHEN SHE MISSED one of the first rehearsals for the Howard County Gifted and Talented Middle School Band, Molly Reginnitter's friends knew she was doing something important.

Her parents, Mary Jo and John Reginnitter of Woodbine, accompanied the Glenwood Middle School eighth-grader to Albuquerque, N.M., to the American Sheep Industry Association Convention.

Molly, 14, won the trip, sponsored by the Maryland Sheep Breeders Association, by winning the Maryland Make-It-Yourself With Wool contest.

In a professionally choreographed fashion show in Albuquerque, Molly modeled a brown and hunter-green walking outfit she made with Pendleton wool. Her outfit included shorts with leather suspenders, and a hunter-green vest. An international model, magazine editors, designers and retailers judged each designer.

The participants were ages 13 to 17 in the junior category and 18 to 25 in the senior category.

Molly was in the top 13 and a junior semifinalist in the national contest. She won lengths of wool, professional shears and a sewing magazine subscription.

She also enjoyed seminars and workshops with students from across the United States. Both Molly and her sister, Ellen, a Glenwood sixth-grader, have won sewing machines for their outstanding work in sewing contests. Both also are percussionists for the Howard County Middle School Band and Orchestra.

Mr. Wampler teaches now at Thomas Edison High School in Fairfax County, Va. Mr. Pfeifer invites band students and their parents to meet Mr. Wampler at 7: 30 p.m. Monday at the school.
