Western Maryland to celebrate homecoming

October 19, 2001

The Western Maryland College football team takes on Franklin & Marshall tomorrow during homecoming activities, which include awards and a field hockey game.

Up for grabs this year is the Green Terror School Spirit Award. Prizes are available in two categories with a grand prize trophy going to the person or group that is judged as most spirited.

The Body Spirit Award goes to whoever does the best job of using themselves as a Western Maryland College billboard.

The Kinetic Sculpture Award is for the student or graduate who wants to show spirit by decorating anything with wheels. It can be a car (new or old), bike, motorcycle, boat on a trailer, recreational vehicle or riding lawn mower. Entries also can participate in the homecoming parade.

The Green Terror FanZone opens at 9 a.m. tomorrow near Bair Stadium and includes an inflatable playground for children. Drive-in stadium parking is $5 a vehicle.

The Main Street parade starts around noon and winds through Westminster and the campus.

Kickoff against the Diplomats is at 1 p.m. At 12:30 p.m., the field hockey team takes on Bryn Mawr in a conference match.

Football half time festivities include a student dance show and naming the winner of the James Brant Memorial Cup, presented annually to the WMC fraternity or sorority, which has excelled in academics, varsity sports, leadership and community service.

Jerry Baroch, '64, is the 2001 Alumnus of the Year. A retired deputy regional manager for Riyad Bank in Saudi Arabia, Baroch is an active college trustee.

Other winners are: Richard Clower, '50, WMC professor emeritus, Distinguished Alumni Award for Professional Achievement; Sam Galbreath, '40, retired Air Force colonel, Meritorious Service Award; Brian Haight, '91, vice president of Haight Funeral Home and Chapel, Distinguished Alumni Award for Professional Achievement; Frank Kratovik Jr., '90, assistant state's attorney for Queen Anne's County, Alumni Community Service Award.
