Schumacher to aid Katrina-hit school

Diane Schumacher, Howard Community College athletic director, will serve on a nationwide advisory committee that has been formed to help a New Orleans college rebuild its athletic program.

Dillard University, a private, historically black liberal arts institution, suffered extensive damage from Hurricane Katrina. The school's athletic director, Robin L. Martin, solicited help from her peers. Representatives of seven higher education institutions have volunteered to serve on the Dillard University Athletic Advisory Committee.

Guthrie is honored for volunteer efforts

George J. Guthrie of Ellicott City, a systems technician at Verizon, has won the Verizon Excellence Award for the third time; he was a finalist for the past four years.

He won the awards for his work fundraising for Special Olympics and volunteering between 200 and 500 hours a year at sports events in the state and county programs.

Over about eight years, Guthrie said, he has raised more than $300,000 for Special Olympics programs in Maryland. A large portion of the money came from Verizon's matching grants.
