Cecil County Life Spring/Summer 2022
Letter from the Editor:
Cecil County Life recently met with Sandy Turner, the manager of the Cecil County Office of Tourism, to hear about the exciting new events and traditional favorites that will be attracting.visitors to the county this summer and fall.
Cecil County is a desirable destination and a great place to call home—as any local resident will tell you. In this issue, we offer several stories that illustrate some of the exciting things taking place in the county.
There has been a lot of news about Cecil County’s growing reputation as a top-notch location for businesses. Construction on the Bainbridge Logistics Center is officially underway, and with it Cecil County is poised to become a major connector for business transportation along the I-95 corridor. The project could bring as many as 1,500 good-paying jobs.
This issue features a story about Laura Hannan, the first full-time executive director of Fair Hill Nature Center and Environmental Foundation. Her first priority is increasing awareness of the center, the foundation and the outdoors.
Not many schools can boast to having taught two signers of the Declaration of Independence or having a teacher who later became president and trustee of one of the nation’s most elite universities. Contributing writer Gene Pisasale explores the distinguished history of West Nottingham Academy, and the impact that some of its students had on the world around them.
This issue features a story about Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, which is dedicated to inspiring a love of reading by gifting books free of charge to children from birth to age five. This program grew quickly after launching in 1995, and children around the world have benefitted—including right here in Cecil County.
6 B’s is a group that can be described as a “a juggernaut of goodwill.” It was founded by two Elkton High School alumni
Members of the 6 B’s have provided assistance and acts of kindness to many people since the group was formed more than five years ago. They have decided to focus their efforts primarily on Preston & Steve’s Camp Out for Hunger, a food drive to support Philabundance, and the Delaware Special Olympics, including its Polar Bear Plunge.
The subject of the photo essay is the Good Shepherd Catholic School, which has been educating its students under the principles of faith, socialization and character for eight decades.
We hope you enjoy these stories, and we always welcome comments and suggestions for stories to highlight in a future issue of Cecil County Life. We look forward to bringing you the next edition, which will arrive in the fall.
