December 22, 2008

A Clear Spring Middle School eighth-grader and a Hancock Middle/Senior High School senior were presented with Washington County's Youth Meritorious Award at the Washington County Commissioners meeting Tuesday.

Clear Spring eighth-grader Dylan Barger was nominated for the award by guidance counselor Earl Meagher. He has been on the honor roll throughout middle school, works as an assistant yoga instructor at the YMCA, volunteers at his church and helps give out food stamps, according to the nomination.

"Dylan is a very conscientious, cooperative and highly motivated student, as well as highly community-minded," Meagher wrote.

Hancock senior Karly Logsdon was nominated by guidance counselor Susan Schultz. She has maintained high grades, is involved in fall and spring varsity sports, and volunteers with several local organizations. Logsdon helped hurricane victims in Mississippi as part of a church youth group mission trip, participated in United Way's National Youth Service Day and talks to teens about sexual integrity as a Hagerstown Area Pregnancy Center volunteer, according to the nomination.

"She is a fun and energetic person who desires to help others," Schultz wrote.

Logsdon has received a Service Star Award from Washington County Public Schools and a Women of Tomorrow Award from the state of Maryland. She was named Miss Teen Hagerstown and Miss Teen Washington County through the Miss Maryland organization.

The students were selected for the Youth Meritorious Award by the Washington County Community Partnership for Children and Families Community outreach Committee. The award recognizes students who have proven to be outstanding members of the community through academics, leadership and service to citizens.
