In the service

Army Reserve Pvt. Charles A. Garcia has graduated from basic combat training at Fort Jackson, Columbia, S.C. Garcia is the son of Chris and Karen Garcia, of Billings, and a 2013 graduate of Billings Christian School.

Organizations

The Billings Symphony Orchestra and Chorale announced that Jane Van Dyk, a member of the BSO&C board of directors, has been named the Montana Association of Symphony Orchestras Volunteer of the Year. She joined the BSO&C board in 1985, served as board president in 1995-96 and 1996-97 and has chaired many of the board committees over the years, such as the nominating and finance committees.

Van Dyk is a longtime member of the Volunteer Council of the League of American Orchestras, including serving as president in 2009-10. She also served for five years on the board of directors, including a year as president, of Yellowstone Chamber Players, a Billings-based chamber music organization.

MASO Board President David Hummel, also of the Billings Symphony, will present the award to Van Dyk during the BSO&C’s season finale performance of “Carmina Burana” on Saturday, April 26, at 7:30 p.m. at the Alberta Bair Theater.

Montana State Parks announced that Mike Madler, a volunteer with the “Friends of Makoshika” organization, has received the “Volunteer of the Year” Award in Montana State Parks’ Region 7 for his volunteer work at Makoshika State Park. Madler, a licensed land surveyor, volunteers his time surveying the park roads, trails, boundaries and more. He also donates his time and equipment to print maps and brochures for the park.

In the schools

Logan Deeney, of Billings, a 2012 Senior High graduate, earned the Scholar Athlete award presented by the Western State Conference for achieving a 3.5 GPA while attending and playing soccer for Santa Barbara City College in Santa Barbara, Calif., during the fall 2013 semester.

Lauren Ficek, of Billings West High, has been selected as one of only two students in Montana who were named the most promising young scientific leaders in Montana's 2014 high school graduating class. She will participate as a delegate in the 51st year of the National Youth Science Camp held near the National Radio Astronomy Observatory at Green Bank, W.Va.

Established in 1963, the NYSC is an annual summer forum where two delegates from each state exchange ideas with leading scientists and other professionals from academic and corporate worlds. Lectures and hands-on research projects are presented by scientists from across the United States who work on some of the most provocative topics in science today. Delegates are challenged to explore new areas in the biological and physical sciences, art and music with resident staff members and present seminars covering their own areas of research and interest.

The NYSC’s diverse academic program is complemented by an outdoor recreation program. The National Youth Science Foundation, based in Charleston, West Virginia, covers all expenses, including travel. More information is available online at nysf.com and nysc.org.

Local students on the scholastic honor roll for the winter term at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Ore., are David A. Holman, of Billings, and Elizabeth G. Byron, of Hardin.
