Clear Spring awarded soda machine contract


The Washington County Board of Education Tuesday voted 5-1 to award Clear Spring High School an exclusive vending machine contract.

School Board President Bernadette Wagner voted against the bid, saying she would prefer schools gain revenue in other ways than by selling soda.

Clear Spring signed a six-year exclusive contract for full service soft drink vending machines with Central Coca-Cola Bottling Co. in Hagerstown. The contract will give the school four vending machines, one of which will contain canned Coke products.

Clear Spring follows The Washington County Technical High School and North Hagerstown and Smithsburg high schools in signing exclusive vending contracts.

Teachers recognized for national certification


The Washington County Board of Education Tuesday recognized eight teachers who are either candidates for or have received National Board for Professional Teaching Standards certification.

County teachers April Crowl, Sharon Palm, Lucy Austin and JoAnn Nave received certification through the national board last year. Teachers Dianne Mentzer, Linda Barnhart, Judith Martz and Karen Palmer are candidates for certification this year. The national certification process takes one year to complete and requires its candidates to reflect on their teaching styles, videotape lessons and compile portfolios of their students' work.
