A total of two students from this area are included in the 2001-2002 Edition of Who's Who Among American High School Students _ Sports Edition.

Who's Who _ Sports Edition, published by Educational Communications, Inc., Austin, is part of the largest recognition program in the nation honoring high school students. The Who's Who _ Sports Edition honors outstanding student-athletes.

Athletes are nominated by coaches, teachers and sports organizations based on athletic achievement and participation in extra-curricular activities.

Who's Who _ Sports Edition students also compete for $10,000 in scholarship awards. The book is also distributed on a complimentary basis to high schools, colleges and universities and public libraries throughout the country.

Local student-athletes selected include: Keith A. Baeza of Balmorhea and Rocky Dominguez of Pecos.

Natividad completes basic training

Marine Corps Pvt. Kriss H. Natividad, a 1999 graduate of Balmorhea High School, recently completed basic training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, San Diego.

Natividad successfully completed 12 weeks of training designed to challenge new Marine recruits both physically and mentally.

Natividad and fellow recruits began their training at 5 a.m., by running three miles and performing calisthenics. In addition to the physical conditioning program, Natividad spent numerous hours in classroom and field assignments which included learning first aid, uniform regulations, combat water survival, marksmanship, hand-to-hand combat and assorted weapons training. They performed close order drill and operated as a small infantry unit during field training.

Natividad and other recruits also received instruction on the Marine Corps' core values _ honor, courage and commitment, and what the words mean in guiding personal and professional conduct.

Natividad and fellow recruits ended the training phase with The Crucible, a 54-hour team effort, problem solving evolution which culminated with an emotional ceremony in which the recruits were presented the Marine Corps Emblem, and were addressed as "Marines" for the first time since boot camp began.

Study club plans meeting

The Modern Study Club will begin their new club year with a presentation of their yearbooks 2002-2003 by President Joyce Morton, who will also give an over-view of the book, "Looking at Our Upcoming Years," as she welcomes members back after the summer break.

President Morton's theme for the year is _ "Light Tomorrow With Today _ Volunteer."

Club members will be giving the name of a country they will be representing by dressing in a native costume of that land and preparing a dish representative of food from that same country for the Feb. 26, 2003 meeting.

Roll call will be answered by giving the name of a prospective member. The bi-monthly project for the meeting is for all members to participate in a club program this club year.
