Chris Goering, a senior nominated by faculty member Steve Denver, received the club's first award and was presented a plaque naming him as the September 1997 Student of the Month. Goering, according to Denver, is involved in many aspects of student life at Cape Henlopen High School, ineluding the Student Government Association and the Cape Thespi- ans and was involved this year in setting up a long-envisioned school store. He is also an hon- or roll student. "His citizenship, leadership and scholarship exemplify the Rotary motto of "Service Above Self," says information printed on the certificate presented to Goering.

Pre-Ho liday Sale on Great Hol00iy Gifts (prices range from $10-$25 with coupon) Milton Middle student displays art in MS exhibit By Rosanne Pack Families share holidays, yard work, birthdays and the dishes. They also share in the heartaches, inconvenience and triumphs when a family member lives with a chronic illness. Julia Morris knows about all those forms of sharing first hand, and she put some of her feelings into words and pictures for an exhibit of children's art- work that is MORRIS sponsored by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS). Her essay and an illustrated poster are included in "MS Through the Eyes of a Child," an exhibit featuring work by children ages five- through 15- years-of-age who have a parent with MS. The just-turned 13-year-old has grown up with a mother who has lived with MS since she was a teenager herself. Julia's essay comments on the heartache and anger that the disease brings to all who are touched by it. She concludes her essay with "I hope the scientists find a cure for MS." Her poster is striped with rain- bow colors and a list of how kids are affected by MS. Each entry is accompanied by artwork. The list- ings include the fact that parents with MS get tired easily, some- times can't walk and might have to wear leg braces. The common problems that can affect a parent with MS, such as vision difficul- ties, the need for frequent medica- tion and the inability to keep up a hectic pace are there, too. Julia' entered her essay and poster when her mother, Laura Morris, told her about "MS Through the Eyes of a Child." Morris is the chapter services as- sistant for the Delaware Chapter of the NMSS Sussex County. Her father, Jack Morris, owns Morris Shoe Store. Her mother said that the eighth grader wanted to participate be- cause of her own experience with a parent who has MS and also be- cause so many activities take place in and involve those who live in northern Delaware. "I think she wanted to see Sus- sex County represented, too," Laura Morris said. As a member of nationally suc- cessful Odyssey of the Mind (OM) teams, Julia has had exam- ples of her creativity exhibited be- fore, but this is the first time she has had work featured in an exhib- it. The busy teenager will be part of an OM team again this school year. She also fills much of her time with music of one form or another. She takes piano and flute lessons, plays flute in the band, sings in her church choir and plays in the handbell choir. She also finds time to take horseback riding lessons. The family went to Christiana Mall to see the exhibit last week- end; it closed Oct. 16. This is the first time for the new NMSS ac- tivity and it was scheduled in con- junction with the annual Patter- son-Schwartz MS 150 Bike to the Bay. The Delaware chapter of the NMSS worked in cooperation with Christiana Mall in mounting the exhibit, which contains art works and essays by six children from Delaware and more than 40 works of art in total. The exhibit will be on display again at the NMSS conference in early No- vember. For further information on NMSS and its activities, call the Delaware chapter, 302-655-5610. October 26, 1997 1-4 P.M.
