American Cancer Society honors Dr. Terry Alban.
Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS) is proud to announce that the American Cancer Society will honor Superintendent Dr. Terry Alban as its Relay for Life Maryland Superintendent of the Year.
"This state-level award is for the superintendent who is most involved in championing Relay for Life involvement in his/her school system," says Laurie Frey, American Cancer Society, Inc. South Atlantic Division community manager.
Relay for Life events are held across the country to offer healing, comfort and support for those who have faced cancer or who have lost a loved one to the disease. Dr. Alban’s efforts to mobilize FCPS and the wider Frederick community help ensure that crucial resources go to the battle to end cancer. As a result of Dr. Alban’s support, FCPS involvement has grown from nine to seventeen participating schools.
Ms. Frey will present Dr. Alban’s award at the Relay for Life WOO HOO Celebration! Thursday, November 8, at 6:30 p.m., at the Delaplaine Visual Arts Center in Frederick.
For their outstanding support, the following will receive Relay for Life banners at the ceremony to display at their schools: Glade Elementary, Linganore High, Middletown Middle, Spring Ridge Elementary, Urbana Middle, Urbana High and Walkersville High.
Other schools earning commendations at the celebration are Brunswick Middle, Gov. Thomas Johnson High, Green Valley Elementary, Lincoln Elementary, Monocacy Elementary and Middle, North Frederick Elementary and Oakdale High.
Tuscarora High and Urbana Elementary have come on board for 2013.
