Eastern Tech to honor graduate killed in Iraq
Army Spc. Casey W. Nash, an Eastern Technical High School graduate who was killed in Iraq, will be honored tonight before the school's first football game of the season.
Nash, a 2002 graduate who played center on the school's football team, was killed May 18 in Tahir by an improvised explosive device. He was 22.
His parents will be presented with framed Eastern Tech football jerseys with their son's name and number, and the Air National Guard is to conduct a flyover in Nash's honor.
The ceremony is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. at Community College of Baltimore County-Essex.

Students' art to be displayed at GBMC
Artwork from more than 40 Lutherville Laboratory Elementary School students will be displayed at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center.
The artwork - in a variety of mediums, including tempera paint, oil pastel, paper collage, marker, acrylic paint, paper sculpture and chalk - was professionally matted and framed and will become a permanent collection of the hospital's pediatrics department. The art will be displayed in the corridor leading to the pediatrics emergency department as well as hung in pediatric inpatient rooms and in the pediatric playroom.
The pediatric art project, which will be unveiled at a reception from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday in the Yaggy Atrium, is designed to comfort young patients by allowing them to enter an environment full of images created by other children, rather than a sterile, colorless environment.
