WCPS Principal and Two Students Honored for Service-Learning and Leadership

Hagerstown, MD (May 12, 2008)- Washington County Technical High School principal Jeffrey Stouffer, Boonsboro High School senior Michael Hull, and Hancock High School junior Karly Logsdon are among students, teachers, and administrators from across the state being honored tonight at the Maryland Service-Learning Recognition Dinner at Turf Valley. The awards symbolize the significant student contributions to the community as part of the service-learning program and the service and leadership the students display in promoting the program among their peers.
Mr. Hull and Miss Logsdon are among 44 students who will receive recognition as Student Service Stars, having gone way beyond the basic requirements of the service-learning program. Mike has volunteered his time over the past four years at the S.T.A.R. Equestrian Center, helping riders with disabilities. Mike had spinal surgery last year, came back to the center to do office work, before he was cleared to return to his work with horses and riders. Karly has participated in the Hagerstown Area Pregnancy Center/Sexual Integrity Team in training activities. She has also worked with United Way, Rescue Mission, March of Dimes, and Relay for Life.
Mr. Stouffer is one of two administrators in Maryland receiving 2008 Principal of the Year honors. The award cites leadership in supporting teachers, ensuring program accountability, and promoting high quality service learning.
