JAMES SAXON: James (Jim) Saxon graduated from Glen Burnie High School in 1964. In his three years at Glen Burnie, Jim excelled in sports and school activities.

During his time at Towson, he also served as president of the Kiwanis' Circle K Club, a community and school service organization.

RODGER WALDMAN: Rodger Waldman graduated from Glen Burnie High School in 1961. In 1974, he founded the Chesapeake Audubon Society (CAS) and served as president for nearly 15 years. Under Rodger's leadership and inspiration, the chapter grew from a handful of concerned individuals to over 2,000 members. He did this on his own time, while holding a full-time position with the federal government. In 1977, Rodger led the way in enabling the chapter to purchase its first sanctuary, "Farm Creek", which would eventually grow to include approximately 750 acres; marshes that the Smithsonian Institute determined were a top priority for preservation of the Bay. In 1984, a 400-acre working farm on the Eastern Shore was donated to the CAS. From the start, Rodger envisioned the property, "Pickering Creek", as a place to teach about the unique environment and ecosystems of the Chesapeake Bay. The center provides educational programs to thousands of students and adults annually from eight Maryland counties and the District of Columbia. Rodger was indefatigable inspiration to all who knew and worked with him while founding and directing the Chesapeake Audubon Society. He is the recipient of the William Dutcher award in recognition of his significant contributions to the environment. Due to his dedication, thousands of children and adults have participated in environmental educational opportunities, and these opportunities will continue into the future.

For a significant part of his career, he was a key member of the Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) radar, which is still in use today. Even though his days were filled with work and schooling, Jack managed to be active with his daughter in the Janette School of Dance and dance recitals at Severna Park High School.

She's adorable, Jamie! I've shared the story with others and hopefully the owner will be reunited with her. If not, I know of someone who would be very interested in giving her a forever home. Just let me know. Thanks!
