42 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Comero places in state art contest Rehoboth Elementary School fourth grader Jacqueline Comero, a student in Shorel Clark's class, won second place in the 1997 Delaware Tourism Of- fice Student Art Competi- tion. Six winners from each county were select- COMERO ed, and pre- sented awards by Lt. Gov. Ruth Ann Minner and Delaware Tourism Office Direc- tor Gigi Windley. The student art competition is sponsored by the Delaware Tourism Office in cele- bration of National Tourism Week, May 4-10. The theme of this competition was "Be a Tourist in Your Own Backyard." Comero, 10, received a certificate and a ribbon for her drawing of the old Newcastle Courthouse. Greenwood Continued from page 40 they should expect to experience some failures occasionally, but never should they let those fail- ures discourage them or lead them away from their goals. 'q'he only difference between success and failure is that the successful per- son gets up when they fall down," said Hill. Gay. Tom Carper, who started the Strong Communities Initiative in 1994, was on hand to wish the students well. "None of us are self-made," said Carper, who en- couraged the students to thank those who had helped them find SuCCess. Carper cited a message from a poster he had seen earlier in the Dover Air Force Base gym: "The race goes not always to the swift, but to the one who goes on run- ning." Harris, who had a .611 batting average in 1996, is a native Delawarean. She compared her dream of being an Olympic ath- lete to the dreams of the students. "Softball was my vehicle - my vehicle to success," said Harris. "I knew that softball was going to have to be my vehicle into col- lege." Her parents, she said, al- ways told her that although soft- ball could help her reach that dream, she needed to remember to always make education her priori- ty. As a student at Delcasfle High School, she said she kept good grades, but when it came time for college, she learned she had not had enough visibility in the sport and would not be considered for placement in a Division I univer- sity. Del Tech, Stanton campus, however, offered her a free ride May 23 - May 29, 1997 Barlow earns acadec honors at Clemson Lindsay Barlow, daughter of Glenn and Carol Barlow of Lewes, has been named to the Presi- dent's list at Clemson University; Clemson, S.C., for the spring semes- ter. The Pesi- BARLOW dent's list honors those students who main- tain a 4. 0 average. Barlow is a ju- nior and is majoring in Sociology and Health Science. She plans to 'pursue a career as a licensed so- cial worker. Area residents elected to READ.ALOUD board Chris Rosen of Lewes and Gaff Mack of Rehoboth were named to the READ-ALOUD Delaware board of directors. Rosen is a retired educational psychologist and READ-ALOUD Delaware volunteer member. Rosen also volunteers at the for its two-year program, and she played ball while studying there. After those two years, Temple University offered her the chance to finish her education there and continue to play ball. Like the great achievers Hill re- ferred to earlier in the evening - Harry Truman, who served as a United States President, and Giuseppe Fortunio Fransesco Ver- di, a famous composer - Harris suffered her share of "failures" or disappointments before reaching her goal. After giving all she had in try- outs, she failed to make the Pan American first team and she failed to make the world team. The set- backs, however, did not lead to giving up her goal of becoming an Olympian. Although she nearly crumbled when she called her father from the Pan American training camp to tell him she had not made the cut, her father offered her support. "He said, 'Dionna, I would never, ever be disappointed in you. Every flower blooms in its own time, and your time will come,'" said Harris. What's important to reaching goals, said Harris, is "giving 110 percent all of the time." The two things that human beings can and should always control, she said, are effort and attitude. "During your road to success," said Harris to the scholars, "there are going to be a lot of ups and, downs. I believe that 90 pereentt of success is how you deal witl failure." Harris commended the student. for their willingness to overeom barriers they had already encoun: tered and to set goals for their ill-" tures. "If you can dream some- thing," she said to them, "you can live it. So never stop dreaming."
