Frankford Have Top Math Students Two students representing Greenbrier County received awards at the recently completed State Math Field Day held at West Virginia University in Morgantown. Chris Callison, a fourth grade stu- dent at Ronceverte Elementary, placed third in this state competition. Jared Robe~son, a ninth grade student at Srn~oot Junior High, placed second. Other students competing in this statewide activity~included: Cindy Fields, Roncever'te Elementary; Philip Hickey, Frankford Elementary; Stephanie Bramble, Ronceverte Elementary; Carl Wallace and Terry Gwinn, Greenbrier West. Twenty four of the best math stu- dents from each grade (4-9) repre- senting the eight RESA regions par- ticipate yearly in the State Math Field Day. The students compete with the other students in their grade level and are tested on the various state learner outcomes, math con- cepts, applicatioQ, and problem solving skills for that particular grade. Lewisburg Schools Get Federal Grant Dwight Livesay, Assistant Super- intendent of Greenbrier County Schools, announced that Greenbrier County has been awarded two grants totaling nearly $10,000 from the Competitive Grants for Instruc- tional improvement Program. The grants are awarded by the West Vir- ginia Department of Education to schools which have designed inno- vative programs to improve educa- tional programs and instruction. "Lewisburg Elementary School will receive close to $5,000 to install private phone, lines, printers and telecommunication modems for their existing computers in each of the fourth grade classrooms next year to implement the program. 'Telecom- munications In The Classroom'," Mr Livesay said. The program, written by Dan Greene, teacher at Lewisburg Ele- mentary School, "is designed for fourth grade students to experience state of the art telecommunications operations," according to Mr Livesay. The students will access local electronic bulletin boards like those found at Greenbrier East High School and Cedar Lakes, Ripley; as well as those found out of state like "Dialog" research data bases, 'Com- puserve' computer services, and the "AT&T Long Distance Learning Net- work," Mr Greene wrote in his grant request. According to Mr Greene, "We are quickly moving from a manufactur- ing work force to an information work force, and students need to learn how to use tools that will give them access to that information. Many times schools are the last to get state-of-the-art material, but this program will change that." Lewisburg Junior High's $5,000 grant, "Remediation of Academtc Deficiencies," written by Donna Nickell, Sarah Umberger, and Salina Butler, "addresses the need for re- medial and tutorial services. The ob- jective of the grant is to provide op- portunities for academic success for students who have been identified as high risk for dropping out of school, or for those experiencing academic difficulty," according to Mr Livesay. The grant will provide money for after-school remedial and tutorial services. According to the authors of the grant, "The main goal of this pro- gram is to increase school atten- dance and raise all the academic grades of each participating student one letter grade." Both of the programs will be im- plemented at the beginning of the next school year, Mr Livesay said. Enrollment Up Despite less people applying to medical schools nationally, applica- tions from within the state to the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine (WVSOM) are up 17 per cent compared with last year. Carolyn Bailey, associate dean of student affairs at WVSOM, points to several contributing factors, "includ- ing a more aggressive approach to recruiting." Most significant has been hiring an admissions counselor dedicated to full-time recruiting, she explains. "The admissions counselor has been able to reach traditional stu- dents with college and university vis- its, and has reached more non-tradi- tional students with community vis- its," adds John Gorby, director of admissions at the medical school.

May 23-24. Troy won the West Virginia state- level competition in Charleston March 30 and will be one of 57 con- testants representing the 50 states, five U.S. territories, District of Co- lumbia, and Department of Defense schools. The national competitors have received an all-expenses-paid trip to the nation's capital with a teacher escort for the finals. Six stu- dents are repeat state winners. Participants in the event include sports enthusiasts, playwrights, fu- ture archaeologists, and collectors of everything from cach to bus schedules. One grew up in Poland and is of Lithuanian descent; an- other grew up in the Philippines. But they all have one thing in common -- a passion for geography. And they will be competing for a total of $50,000 in college scholarships. The National Geography Bee is a part of the National Geographic Society's effort to help improve ge- ography education. In an interna- tional Gallup Survey of geographic knowledge sponsored by the Soci- ety in 1988 and t989, 18- to 24- year-olds in the United States placed last in their age group out of ten countries surveyed. National Geographic Society pro- grams to address this problem in- clude a network of geographic alli- ances in 34 states, a summer insti- tute for teachers conducted in Washington, a foundation to support educational programs, and National Geographic Kids Network -- a tele- communications system for the classroom.. More than three million students have competed in the various levels of the 1990 Bee< All 57 state-level winners competed in the preliminary of the contest May 23. Ten finalists will meet May 24 to vie for the top three prizes --- college scholarships of $25,000, $15,000, and $10,000, plus interest, until the students en- roll in the college of their choice. Each of the ten finalists will receive a cash gift of $500, along with Am- trak regional coach tickets for a fam- ily of four to any Amtrak destination. West Virginia's contestant Troy Hunter will be escorted by his teacher James Reed. Hunter's par- ents are Warren and Kay Hunter of Rainelle. Find the time. Have a mammogram.
