Davidsonville resident Betty Knupp recently received the Excellence in Public Service Award from the Alumni Association of Goucher College. This annual award is given to alumni who demonstrate outstanding commitment and leadership in public service.

The college gave her another class and another, and pretty soon she was teaching seven classes a week, a career that spanned 25 years.An avid gardener, Knupp volunteers in the gardens of her church, a children's museum and a senior center. She's also worked with the Anne Arundel Literacy Council and co-founded the South County Concert Association, bringing music to the Annapolis area. She has served on its board for 42 years.
