The Woodholme Foundation capped off its sixth annual Celebrity Weekend with a packed house. About 150 guests jammed a banquet room at the Admiral Fell Inn. They sipped cocktails and nibbled hors d'oeuvres, while comparing scores from two days of golf tournaments in both Delaware and Maryland. But the night's big moment came with introductions of several recipients of the foundation's Second Chance awards, which pay the total cost of the freshman year in college for needy minority students recommended by a teacher, school counselor or principal.

With only 10 minutes notice, the 45 teachers of Woodholme Elementary School eagerly escorted their 781 students to a mystery assembly. Principal Maralee Clark had carefully crafted what she would say to them and quickly began building the suspense. "Boys and girls, we've won another award!" Clark said she enthusiastically told the students and staff gathered in the Pikesville school's auditorium on Jan. 17. Next, she called various faculty members onstage one by one, purposely planting the idea that yet another Woodholme teacher had been singled out for recognition.

For a championship match where each player took turns struggling, it figured that one would run into trouble at the crucial hole. That was the case in the final of the 63rd Women's Metropolitan championship yesterday at Chartwell Country Club, as Andrea Kraus outlasted Cindy Peterka in 19 holes for a third consecutive title.Each was over the back edge of the green in three at the par-5 first hole, facing a delicate chip shot to a pin that was about 10 feet from the rear of the green. Kraus' effort from 20 feet started out through the collar and turned down to the hole and almost dropped.

There are some teachers whose genius is clear nearly from the moment they step into a classroom. McKinley Broome, it seems, is one of those teachers. In his first year of teaching, he won the Rookie Teacher of the Year Award in Baltimore County and Wednesday, just six years into his career, the fourth-grade math and reading teacher was presented the Milken Educator Award, an award compared to the Oscars for teaching. The $25,000 cash award was a closely guarded secret at Woodholme Elementary School known only to the principal.

Baltimore County school district officials last night unveiled two sets of proposed boundaries for the new Woodholme Elementary School, scheduled to open this fall to relieve crowding at New Town Elementary School. Under both proposals, Woodholme would draw children from New Town, Milbrook and Owings Mills elementary schools. The only difference between the two proposals is that one would move some children from Owings Mills Elementary to Fort Garrison Elementary, and move the area around the Owings Mills mall from the New Town attendance area to the Woodholme attendance area.

Although many in the community still aren't pleased with the chosen location for a much-needed elementary school in northwestern Baltimore County, ground is to be broken today for Woodholme Elementary in Pikesville. School officials have an ambitious construction schedule for the $15.3 million school, which they hope to open for the 2005-06 school year. Many Pikesville residents had opposed building Woodholme Elementary at 300 Mount Wilson Lane, which they said is too narrow and winding to accommodate the school, new housing and two other planned developments.

Baltimore County public schools may be named after people, provided they are dead, under a policy approved last night by the board of education. Schools may continue to be named after communities, subdivisions, streets, landmarks or other indicators of their geography. But now, in addition, they may be named after people who contributed significantly to the county, state or country.
