The Washington County Board of Commissioners presented Meritorious Youth awards to four Washington County students earlier this month, in recognition of academic success and leadership in community activities.

The honorees were:

• Catherine Hawfield, an eighth-grade student at Boonsboro Middle School.

Catherine is an honor-roll student who participates in merit chorus and merit orchestra, and plays volleyball and basketball, guidance counselor Lauren McDermott said.

"Catherine is a kind and caring student at Boonsboro who displays her good character, leadership and scholastic achievements on a daily basis," McDermott wrote in her nomination.

Catherine is the daughter of Robert and Cindi Hawfield.

• Elizabeth Mott, an eighth-grade student at Clear Spring Middle School.

Elizabeth is in all merit classes, leads the clarinet section in the school band, plays soccer and basketball, and has volunteered at the REACH cold weather shelter, guidance counselor Earl Meagher said.

"As school counselor I hear many positive comments about Elizabeth from the school staff," Meagher wrote in her nomination.

Elizabeth is the daughter of William and Susan Mott of Clear Spring.

• Collin Willhite, an eighth-grade student at Clear Spring Middle School.

Collin is a model chorus student, leads multiple sports teams, and volunteers at his church and in the concession stand for Clear Spring Little League, guidance counselor Earl Meagher said.

"He is very conscientious, kind, and highly motivated," Meagher wrote.

Collin is the son of Jason and Mary Willhite of Clear Spring.

• Anna Gerringer, a seventh-grade student at Springfield Middle School.

Anna is enrolled in three merit-level classes, is taking a French class for high school credit and is involved in the band program, counselor Jennifer Joyce said.

"She is a very hard worker, always tries her best, and her teachers say she is a joy to have in class," Joyce wrote in her nomination. "She is always trying to help others."
