Annapolis High Class of 1958 plans 40th reunion in August


January 19, 1998|By Melinda Rice | Melinda Rice,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

IN 1958, ALASKA became the 49th state to join the union; "The Chipmunk Song" and "The Purple People Eater" dominated the airwaves; and Arnold Palmer won his first Master's tournament.

It was also the year Libby Joyce Hopkins and her classmates at Annapolis High School donned caps and gowns to celebrate the end of their last year in high school.

Now Hopkins is organizing the class's 40th reunion.

She wants anyone who was in that class, or knows someone who was, to call her at 410-267-8311.

The reunion is scheduled for Aug. 8 at the Annapolis Elks Club.

Perfect SAT score

Annapolis High School student Caitlin Marlow recently scored a perfect 1,600 on the SAT -- she was one of 17 students in the state this school year to do so.

What makes the feat especially spectacular is that Caitlin is a junior. Most students wait until the 12th grade to take the test or, if they take it as 11th-graders, it is usually as a trial run.

SAT scores are a prime factor in college admissions.

Hosanna Players tickets

Tickets are on sale for the Hosanna Players production of "Father Knows Best" at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts in Annapolis.

The group is a Christian family theater troupe with children from 60 families. Proceeds from ticket sales will defray the cost of putting on the show.

The annual performance gives the children, who are all home-schooled, the opportunity to participate in an extracurricular activity.

"They formed something as a group of parents to try to create something challenging for these home-schooled kids to do," said John Kyler, the group's spokesman.

Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for children younger than 17. Performances are at 7: 30 p.m. Feb. 25 and Feb. 27, 10 a.m. Feb. 26, and 6: 30 p.m. Feb. 28.

For tickets, call Christine Korosec at 410-315-7911. For more information about the Hosanna Players, call Kyler at 410-626-8116.
