April 25, 2010

WASHINGTON COUNTY -- Boonsboro Middle School eighth-grader Maggie Sullivan and Hancock Middle-Senior High School senior Nicklas Harvey were recognized this month with Washington County Youth Meritorious Awards for academic achievements and community service.

Maggie, who was described as a "distinguished student and talented artist," takes merit classes and participates in a language magnet program at Boonsboro Middle School.

"She is caring, cooperative, dedicated, hardworking and conscientious, and puts forth maximum effort on all assignments," counselor Susan Fisher wrote in Maggie's nomination.

Maggie was the school winner in a peace poster contest and was selected to create one of the Barbara Ingram School for the Arts' butterfly sculptures last year. She plays the oboe and was selected for All-County Band. She also plays club volleyball and lacrosse, and volunteers at the Western Maryland Hospital Center.


She is the daughter of Daniel and Caroline Sullivan of Boonsboro.

Nick was nominated by counselor Corey Alkire based on "excellent academic achievement, community service and leadership skills in the classroom, on the athletic fields and in the community."

He takes advanced-level classes, has a 4.13 GPA and scored a 1760 on his SAT. He is a member of the National Honor Society, competes on his school's academic team and received honorable mention in the Maryland Distinguished Scholar Program.

Nick was named team captain of the Hancock Panthers football and basketball teams his junior and senior seasons, and has been a three-time member of the all-county football team. He was a finalist for Washington County Defensive Player of the Year.

He has accumulated 221 community service hours while coaching sports in the Hancock community, and is a manager and lifeguard at the Hancock Community Pool.

He is the son of Arcie and Melissa Harvey.

Maggie and Nick were presented with the awards at the April 13 meeting of the Washington County Commissioners.

They were selected for the awards by the Community Partnership for Children and Families' Community Outreach Committee.
