Cape High senior Josh Wo00._,rtz wins six Ferguson Scholarships By Amy Reardon Cape HenlopenHigh School senior Josh Woertz sealed the en- velope of his first college applica- tion and sent it off to his top choice Wingate University in North Carolina. He won&apos;t hear back from the school for months, but With six Michael Fergu- son Scholar- ships in his pockeL he knows the tu- ition will be manageable if he's accepted. WOERTZ "Woertz is the kind of student who's nice to have around," said Principal Ed Waples. "He's a package deal. He gives you the academics, which are so important, and he's involved in sports and plays. You know he's going to be a productive part of society because he's a balanced person." Woertz is one of two Delaware students to earn six Michael C. Ferguson Scholarships. The program, named in memory of former Deputy Superintendent and Acting Superintendent of the Department of Public Instruction and former state Director of the Budget Michael Ferguson, gives 600 $1000-scholarships to eighth and tenth grade students who earn the highest raw scores on the Delaware State Testing Program (DSTP). Students can win multi- ple scholarships in one year by testing well in reading, writing and math. Woertz, who was in eighth grade in 2000 when the scholar- ship program began, is one of two students in the state to win a scholarship in all three subject ar- eas in both testing years. The other student attends Mount Pleasant High School in Wilmington. In addition to holding an hon- ored spot among Ferguson schol- ars, Woertz is an active member of the Cape community. He started as safety for the foot- ball team last fall and performs in school plays. He is currently rehearsing for "Footloose" which will open in February and is known throughout the school for his lead role in Pe- ter Pan. Woertz, a member of the Na- tional Honor Society, describes himself as a decent student and at- tributes his success to hard work, his mother's support and Cape's teaching staff. "I ate a good breakfast and ap- plied what I learned throughout the year," said Woertz. "The teachers prepared me very well. Cape is a good district with good teachers." Wingate tops Woertz's list of colleges because of its strong pro- gram in sports management and broadcasting. "I want to be on 'Sports Cen- ter,'" said Woertz. "I like talking in front of people and I like sports. It's the best combination of both worlds." ,:: .  :: Woertz's 000 in S cRolargbg will go intd an account until he decides on a college to attend in the fall. "Josh is a fine example of what Cape students are about," said Waples. "We are proud and excit- ed for him. We're looking to get all students to perform on that lev- el." MUSIC ...............

It is with this spirit that the Lower Delaware Autism Foundation has its ori- gin. LDAF is a nonprofit organization which strives to promote autism awareness and to provide finan- cial support throughout Sussex County with the ulti- mate goal of giving children the opportunity to achieve a meaningful and productive life. These scholarships are designed to help the foundation with its mission and provide substantial financial support to worthy recipients. Preference is given to, but not limited to, individu- als seeking a degree in education, special education, speech-language pathology, school psychology, oc- cupational therapy or physical therapy. The applica- tion deadline is Feb. 18.
