Two Carroll County Public Schools students have been recognized as Maryland Student Service Stars for 2010. This program, sponsored by the Maryland State Department of Education, recognizes students all over the state for their extraordinary contributions to their communities through service-learning and for their devotion and leadership in promoting service among their peers.
Lindsey Scott, a 2010 Graduate of Westminster High School, participated in many service-learning activities this year for the benefit of not only the people in our community, but the animals as well. Through her work with 4-H, Small Angels Animal Rescue, and the Therapeutic Riding Center, Scott earned 2145 service learning hours before her graduation from Westminster High School.
Grant Kilduff, a rising junior at Liberty High School, has done many service-learning activities through his involvement with the Boy Scouts of America. He has helped with their Adopt-A-Road clean-ups and food collections, in addition to many other projects. Grant has also volunteered at the Appalachian Mission store, which collects donations for those in need. To date, Grant has accumulated 655.25 service hours, and he intends to continue helping his community as much as possible before he graduates in two years.
