Teen to be honored at White House


A Glen Burnie teen-ager will be one of 140 high school graduates honored today at a White House ceremony for their work at school and in the community.

Meredith M. Reffner, 17, an Old Mill High School graduate, has been chosen a Presidential Scholar of the Arts and will receive a medallion from President Clinton and first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The Presidential Scholars Program, established in 1964, selects students based on their academic and artistic success, leadership and school and community involvement.

Today's ceremony will be held on the South Lawn at 11:30 a.m..

Meredith, a ballerina, will spend seven weeks this summer at the Chautauqua Institution in New York studying dance as part of a $1,000 scholarship.
