Mt. View Hosts CHIP Program

The Pennsylvania Free Masons and the Mountain View/Harford Alumni Association sponsored the first Child Identification Program (CHIP) for the county at Mountain View Elementary School during kindergarten registration.

"CHIP addresses the alarming fact that over 1,000,000 children are reported missing in the United States each year," said Grand Master William Slater II at a press conference in January. “This program makes sure that every parent has the tools they will need in the event their child is abducted."

In order to help, the CHIP program is provided to the public free of charge. Included in the program are a digital video CD, fingerprints, and a DNA collection kit. All of this information is given directly to the parents before they leave.

Pictured (l-r) are: Richard Zick - Harford Lodge #445; Daniel Galloway - CHIP Supervisor; MaryJane Taylor - Mountain View/Harford Alumni; Joanne Zick - Mountain View/Harford Alumni; Nathan A. Foster - District Deputy Grand Master District 15; Margaret S. Foster - Mountain View Elementary Principal.

The Mountain View School District is proud to host the first CHIP program in the county and will be offering the service to the families of all Mountain View Elementary school students May 24, 25, and 26.

They hope that this information is never needed by any of their program participants. The peace of mind that comes with having this information available, will help both parents and law enforcement if the need should arise. Thanks go out to the many members of local lodges in the 15th Masonic District and the Alumni Association for providing volunteers to run the program.

Khayla Shearer Gets National Award

The United States Achievement Academy announced today that Khayla Shearer from Friendsville, PA, has been named a United States National Award Winner in Science. This award is a prestigious honor very few students can ever hope to attain. In fact, the Academy recognizes fewer than 10% of all American high school students.

Khayla, who attends Montrose Area High School, was nominated for this national award by Deborah Lewis, a teacher at the school. Khayla will appear in the United States Achievement Academy Official Yearbook, which is published nationally.

"Recognizing and supporting our youth is more important than ever before in America's history. Certainly, United States Achievement Academy winners should be congratulated and appreciated for their dedication to excellence and achievement," said Dr. George Stevens, Executive Director of the United States Achievement Academy.

The Academy selects USAA winners upon the exclusive recommendation of teachers, coaches, counselors, and other qualified sponsors and upon the Standards of Selection set forth by the Academy. The criteria for selection are a student's academic performance, interest and aptitude, leadership qualities, responsibility, enthusiasm, motivation to learn and improve, citizenship, attitude and cooperative spirit, dependability, and recommendation from a teacher or director.

Khayla is the daughter of Steve and Marise Shearer from Friendsville, PA. Grandparents are Jerry and Mary Shearer of Stevens, PA, and Geralda Warmers from Lady Lake, Florida.
