Severna Park pupil wins academic scholarship


March 05, 1998|By Joni Guhne | Joni Guhne,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

CHRISTOPHER Rutland, a Severna Park Middle School pupil, has won a full-tuition academic scholarship to Archbishop Spalding High School.

The scholarships are even more highly sought after than admission to the school. More than 400 eighth-graders are vying for the fewer than 250 slots that will be available to the Class of 2002.

B&A Trail walk planned

Park Ranger David DeVault has scheduled a search-for-spring hike along the B&A Trail at 10 a.m. March 14.

If the previous weather is any indication, this hike, which begins at the Jones Station Road/B&A Trail intersection in Severna Park, should be a great success.

Register by calling the park office at 410-222-6244.

Volunteers needed

The American Cancer Society needs the help of a few volunteers.

The society's Reach to Recovery program uses women who are at least one year past treatment for breast cancer to visit breast cancer patients to offer support.

This program also helps family and friends of breast cancer patients.

Volunteers are also needed for the ACS's Road to Recovery program to give patients a ride from home to their treatment facility. It takes only a car and a few weekday hours each month between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

For information on both programs, call 410-721-4304.
