Some notes from the Webmaster

14 January 2020


Speakers from Crofton High School
President Dan Scholfield called the meeting to order. He introduced the evening's speaker, Katie Feuerherd, recently appointed the first principal of soon-to-open Crofton High School and a former principal of Southern High School. Mrs. Feuerherd was accompanied by assistant principal Dan Kassel, formerly a science teacher at Annapolis High School, and business manager Cathy Jost, who has also served at Southern High School. The trio were accompanied by Mr. Chris Trufferd, Regional Assistant Superintendent of Schools.

Mrs. Feuerherd's first topic was the development of Crofton High School's "Signature Program". She observed that every high school uses its "Signature Program" as a connection to the community and the local businesses, and has special courses that students can take. She "Signature Program" for Crofton High School will be developed , with meetings scheduled through February.

The safety of the 800 to 900 students coming to Crofton High School was a question for assembled parents. The speed limit on State Route 424 may be reduced, but it is a state road, not a county road. There will be "numerous" crossing guards, turning lanes will be created, and provision of a guardrail will be dependent on local elected officials.

The High School's "Program of Study" will "be built from the ground up, and will include the "core area of classes needed for graduation." The interests at Crofton Middle School are being assessed and considered. Health Care and Information Technology are being considered for the "Signature Program."

Linthicum Walks President Katie Dentler and GCC Vice President Torrey Jacobsen

The Greater Crofton Council (GCC) recently donated $10,000 to assist with the preservation, protection and promotion of the Historic Linthicum Walks farmhouse and grounds, located next to the Crofton Middle School. Pictured are Linthicum Walks President Katie Dentler and GCC Vice President Torrey Jacobsen. Linthicum Walks dates to the mid-1700's and consists of a frame farmhouse built on a stone foundation, embodying the distinctive Tidewater architectural characteristics of early Maryland. The grounds also contain a family cemetery. The Friends of Linthicum Walks at Crofton will hold a General Membership meeting at the farmhouse later this Spring. Linthicum Walks is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as well as the Maryland Historic Trust.
