GREAT MILLS (May 16, 2009)—Congratulations to Adam Sickle and Julian Thornton, who each won a $500 college scholarship courtesy of Southern Maryland Online and Business, Education and Community Alliance (BECA).
An awards ceremony was held Thursday at the Dr. James A. Forrest Career &

He is a well-rounded scholar athlete, consistently making the Honor Roll while participating in Varsity football and track.

He was inducted into the National Technical Honor Society and helps run his family business, Farm Valley Nursery, in addition to operating his own produce stand.
