Students finish academic marathon

The students of class 7-D at Southampton Middle School in Bel Air celebrated the completion of their Marathon of Achievement with a dinner and awards ceremony last week at the Richlin Ballroom.

This was no ordinary marathon - rather than pushing themselves athletically, the students strained to complete 26 activities in academics, service learning and character education outside the classroom.

Students are given a choice of 30 activities and must select 26 to complete in six months.

John Carroll School names vice president

The John Carroll School has named Kurt Sudbrink as vice president for institutional advancement.

He will be responsible for directing and managing the school's major gifts and planned giving programs; and will oversee development communications and the integration of the annual, capital and alumni efforts.
