OUTSTANDING contributions that benefit home, school, community, country and the world were the criteria met by Jean Haverstick to win Soroptimist International's "Youth Citizenship" award.

Ms. Haverstick, a senior at Oakland Mills High School, is one of the two graduating seniors in Maryland to receive the award, which is funded by the Soroptimist Foundation and Soroptimist Foundation of Canada.

Scholarship award

Oakland Mills High School senior Keri Farmer has been selected the winner of a $2,000. scholarship from the National Achievement Scholarship Program for Outstanding Negro Students.

More than 1,200 semifinalists were considered for the awards.

Four hundred regional scholarships for African-Americans, valued at $3 million, were offered this year.

Keri is the daughter of Marilyn and Kiftler Farmer.

Parents are welcome to bring their teen-aged daughters, too.

Ms. Murphy designed her publication for educators and counselors, as well as parents. The discussion will be at Cover To Cover Bookstore in the Owen Brown Shopping Center.

Grocery receipts results

Collecting and donating grocery receipts to St. John the Evangelist Catholic parish paid off for students and schools.

A total of $473,000 in Giant and Safeway receipts will buy computer and sports equipment for Beechfield, Sussex and Madonna Schools in Baltimore.

Take a moment to stop in the lobby of the Wilde Lake Interfaith Center, where a mural created by Beechfield students is displayed as their symbol of gratitude.
