A SEVERN GIRL has been selected as a finalist in the 1996 Pre-Teen Maryland Scholarship and Recognition Program that will be held this weekend at the Ramada Inn in Hagerstown.

Kristina M. Lockhart, daughter of Betty A. Lockhart, was chosen as a representative of the state after a review of her academic record and her participation in civic and church programs.

The finalists, girls 7 to 12 years old, will be judged on academic achievement, volunteer service to church and community, school honors and activities and development of personal skills.

Pre-Teen Maryland will award more than $5,000 in educational bonds and prizes at the competition.
