La Salle fills truck with food

Allen Howard

Students at La Salle High School are practicing the mission spirit of their 17th-century patron, St. John Baptist de La Salle, who ministered to the poor.

The students completed a month-long drive this week, collecting canned goods in their annual Truck Full of Love project.

"Our goal was to surpass the 2002 collection of 69,500 canned goods," said teacher Jim Hautman, director of student activities.

The students started loading a 53-foot trailer Wednesday.

Today the canned goods will be delivered to St. Vincent de Paul Societies at St. Ann's Parish in Groesbeck, and in Oxford.

They will arrive at Little Sisters of the Poor on Riddle Road in Clifton on Friday.

Activist doctor

Dr. Mark Boston wants doctors to be concerned with legislative issues that affect the practice of medicine.

He will address that interest as the newly elected chairman of the Section for Residents and Fellows of the American Academy of Otolaryngology.

Boston is a senior clinical fellow in pediatric otolaryngology at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.

"This position gives me the opportunity to work with fellows and residents to promote our interest," said Boston, 38, of West Chester.

Actor lands lead

Jonathon Vogt, son of Michael and Janet Vogt, Anderson Township, will perform the leading role in the Edward Albee play Seascape.

Vogt is a freshman at Guilford College, Greensboro, N.C. The play will be performed there this fall.

Sisters to compete

Three sisters from Montgomery will head the list from Ohio in the Pre-Teen America competition next July in Baton Rouge, La.

The judging is based on academic achievement, volunteer service to community, school honors and activities, development of personal skills and abilities, general knowledge, communicative ability and on-stage expression.

The Lang sisters won the right to compete in Baton Rouge by winning a state competition in Columbus. Victoria, 12, a seventh-grader at All Saints Catholic School, Montgomery, won in the 10-12 age category. Her sister, Rebecca, 11, a sixth-grader, tied for second runner-up. And little sister Stephanie, 9, a fourth-grader, won in the 7-9 category. They are the daughters of Dr. James and Jackie Lang.
