The Harlem High School girls track team, under the leadership of coach Frances Smith and assistant coach Don Hall, has brought Harlem High School the first state championship in the history of the school.
After qualifying by placing second in the region, the team traveled to Atlanta where they racked up 83 of a possible 96 points to take the state championship.
Members of the team are Pam Newsome, Velveeta Germany, Betty Marshall, Lucille Leverett, Shirley Dunn, Mildred Scott, Edith Raiford, Sheila Gracey, Carolyn Steed, Willette Leverette and Martha Lanier.
Honor Choir Fund
Contributions continue to come in for the U.S. Honor Choir Fund, the fund implemented to help three Evans High students represent Columbia County in touring Europe.
These students - Marie Wheatley, Karen Williams and Rose Marie Hinnant - were chosen by audition from numerous entries all over the 50 states to sing with the 200-member U.S. Honor Choir as it tours nine European countries.
James M. Kennedy Jr. of Martinez and Alvin L. Milby of Meansville, Ga., have been awarded the ITT Rayonier Foundation senior scholarships at the School of Forest Resources at the University of Georgia.
Each student receives $600 scholarship.
An expanded camping program for White Oak Camp Ground, Augusta District, will be launched this summer with the completion of a $53,000 residence and office for the newly designated camp director who will coordinate camp activities and facilities and serve as pastor of the White Oak-Shiloh Charge.
