State and local elected officials

WHAT:          In his role as a member of the Board of Public Works, Comptroller Franchot will tour the site of the new Frederick High School Tuesday morning. Construction will start in May. Students will remain in the current building until the new school is built.

The Comptroller then will visit and present a proclamation to Antonio Rico and Nolan Kulbiski, owners of Citizen Frederick – a new men’s clothing and home goods store in Frederick. At lunchtime, Mr. Franchot will speak to the members of the Frederick County Chamber of Commerce on the state’s economic outlook and hear business leaders’ concerns.

His final stop will be at the Frederick County Board of Education Office, where he will present his Maryland Masters Awards to three students. They are: Kate West, a second grader at Lincoln Elementary School, Frederick, for her winter landscape painting; Kaila Webster, a seventh grader at West Frederick Middle School, Frederick, for a sculpture of a hand with a mask and bird; and Jensen Riley, a senior at Governor Thomas Johnson High for silhouette cut-outs of countries using the nation’s most popular candy. The award recognizes young artists who have displayed extraordinary artistic skills and vision for Maryland’s future.
