Local student helps governor trim tree
By DAVE McMILLION
A Washington County student was one of 24 from across the state who helped Gov. Parris N. Glendening decorate a "Maryland History" Christmas tree in the State House Sunday.
Hancock Middle-Senior High student Amy Smith represented five students from her school who made ornaments for the tree and others in the Government House, said her art teacher Jeanne Norris.
Smith and the other 23 students in Sunday's ceremony took turns joining Glendening and his wife Frances Hughes Glendening in placing the hand-made ornaments on the tree, which depicts state history.
