SCO Video investigates this new MCPS Initiative.
Ten Montgomery County Public School (MCPS) students were selected for full-tuition, four-year college scholarships from the Posse Foundation, a program which identifies public high school students with outstanding academic and leadership potential but have been overlooked by the traditional college selection process.

There are roughly 10 quintillion (10,000,000,000,000,000,000) bugs on the planet earth and 150 million square kilometers of dry land. That means that there's roughly 20,000 insects per square foot. While that might make some people's skin crawl, the students in Elizabeth Duval's ninth period entomology class are an exception to the rule.

The Blazer is one of the more cryptic mascots in MCPS. Einstein's Titan or Kennedy's Cavalier, just to name a few, are pretty simple to figure out, and even reuse the logos of other prominent sports teams like the Tennessee Titans and the Cleveland Cavaliers. At Blair, different students have different ideas of what the Blazer is. In fact, there are different Blazers all over Blair.

Before the puck dropped on Blair's Nov. 7 opener against the Rockville Rams, there were many questions about whether Blazer Hockey would even be able to field a team. Due to an unusual influx of underclassmen (see Sasha Tidwell's Sept. 25 story detailing the problem here) the team was under threat from being registered as a multi high school (co-op) team.
Coming off a road loss earlier in the week, the Blazers (2-1) knew they couldn't underestimate the Wheaton Knights (1-2). While the Knights hung around for the first three quarters of the game, the Blazers were able to eventually pull away and win comfortably 59-42.
