Montrose, 18, a graduate of Severna Park High School, built an outdoor bulletin board that now displays fishing regulations and information at Kinder Farm Park. Montrose is a culinary arts student at Anne Arundel Community College and an assistant Scoutmaster with his troop.

Hospital Lauded for Support of Women

North Arundel Hospital was given the Network 2000 Business Award during a Nov. 6 ceremony at the Marriott Waterfront Hotel in Annapolis. The hospital received the award, which recognizes companies that place women in high-ranking positions, for having a high percentage of women in decision-making jobs. Network 2000 is a coalition of Annapolis and Anne Arundel County businesses.

Approximately 80 percent of the hospital's managers are women, along with 83 percent of the hospital's workforce.
