Health Department honors Project ACES participants

The Carroll County Health Department's Project ACES (Active Children Excel in School) program attracted a record 6,378 pupils in 21 county elementary schools in October.

Pupils were asked to log at least 30 minutes of daily physical activity for a two-week period.

Of all the entries, 96 percent met the 30-minute daily requirement.

Schools were awarded cash prizes based on their level of participation. Individuals also received prizes.

Insurance agents donate funds for CCC scholarships

Carroll Community College has received its annual donation from the Independent Insurance Agents of Carroll County for scholarships.

The college presents two scholarships each year to students seeking an associate's degree in business administration or economics.

The Independent Insurance Agents have supported the college's business scholarship since 1998. This year's donation was for $1,000, raised through a golf tournament and crab feast.

John Yingling, chairman of the Scholarship Committee, recently presented the check from the insurance agents to Faye Pappalardo, college president, and Steve Wantz, executive director of the CCC Foundation.
