Scholars Continued from page 35 topic," she said. "They were usu- ally interesting, but they often ended up talking about their own experiences, and the discussion went off in all directions." Sharing and exchange As thought provoking as the world theme discussions were, both Myers and Pepper found the exchange with other teenagers, mostly on their day-to-day lives, as memorable as anything. A young man from Somalia made an impression on Myers when he told of his personal experiences with terrorists and even the behavior of U.S. soldiers in his home town. He had a perspective on gun con- trol and violence that Myers had never experienced. Often, the students exchanged humorous traits of their home- towns, and they compared tradi- tions and habits. Pepper said that everyone was surprised to hear of the Piping Out Ceremony staged in Rehoboth Beach when the lo- cals bid fond farewell to the tourists. For most, scrapple was an unknown commodity. "There were so many people there, you ended up not spending too much time with just a few of scholar athlete games, artists were given the task of creating a cola lage and their own personal flag. The Cape student said that each had to incorporate symbols that were representative of the artist and of the games. Once finished, the art work went into a perma- nent collection that remains in Rhode Island at the site of the games. Pepper did manage to make color copies of her work so she would have something to look back on. She said that she picked up ideas and techniques from talk- ing with and watching other young artists work. The art students all visited the Rhode Island School of Design, ands the school made quite an im- pression on Pepper. "It is awesome. I want to go there so bad," she said. All who attend the games are eligible to enter a competition in an effort to win scholarship money for schools in Rhode Island. Pepper is waiting for the information, and may give the competition a shot. Lasting memories Both Cape students will consid- er returning to the games as vol- unteer counselors. Myers is sure that he will apply; Pepper said it will depend on where she is at the time. In addition to speakers, discus- "When we first got there, and started singing at our choir ses- sion, chills went from my toes up my spine. As the week went on, I found myself learning stuff I nev- er thought I would know...meeting kids, feeling what other kids feel. "They started something there that is really great."

"You would see someone for 30 minutes, and talk and talk and be friends and know that you had so much in common but then, you might not see them again." In the International Choir, My- ers and approximately 120 other students worked on such music as a medley from "Les Miserables." In addition to performing at the closing ceremonies, the choir trav- eled to Bel Court Castle in New- port where they had a recording session. Art student Pepper usually paints and draws, however, at the sion sessions and time spent in their field, those attending the games were exposed to lots of en- tertainment and activities just for fun. There were several concerts, including the opening concert pro- vided by the Beach Boys. There were dances, sports, the popular "underground care" and always, visiting and sharing. "It was such a great experi- ence," Pepper said. "Meeting dif- ferent people, and the idea that you can go up and talk to them and have something in common." "It's not like there is one thing that Can sum it up," Myers said. 8:00 a.m. race start at Deauville Beach (just north of the boardwalk) TAC certified course Non-competitive Walk (1 mile) offered also!
