   "I have always loved to cook," she said. "I had an Easy
Bake Oven as a little girl, and used it till it broke down."
   She has a drive for the kitchen because of the
healthy meals she prepares for her mother, Kim
Brown, director of marketing at Longview Regional
Medical Center.
   Gorman's part-time job at Cook's Nook gives her
access to the American Culinary Federation (ACF) and
the TCA. She became a member of both organiza-
tions, and met some interesting people such as LHS
culinary instructor Vickie Trammel, who taught her
knife skills and food temperatures.
   "She [Trammel] is a lot of fun. She pushes all of us
because she knows we have potential," said Brown.
   This new knowledge came in handy during compe-
tition with well-known Dallas culinary schools.
   "I am real proud of what our school did," she said.
"Just competing with the schools in Dallas was no
small feat."
   The unique aspect of Brown's award is that its
winners are normally college students. She is the
only active high school student member of the Texas
Culinary Chefs in the East Texas region.
   She foresees a busy future with careers both in the
culinary arts and animal and human sciences.
   She is also a busy lady at LHS. She is a three-year
member of the student council, two-year member of the
Z-Club, two-year member and vice-president of the LHS
chapter of Future Farmers of America and Agriculture.
   Apart from her membership in the Texas Chefs'
Association & American Culinary Federation, she is a
distinguished alumnus of National Youth Leadership
Forum, and a member of the National Society of High
School Scholars.
   Gorman pursues her volunteer work through the
following organizations--Longview Regional Medical
Center's events, Stars over Longview, Healthy Woman,
Hospital Week, Family Night, various walks, Win-
dridge Therapeutic Equestrian Center, American Heart
Association heart walks, Lifepoint Christian Church, as
a First Christian Church day camp counselor, and the
Longview Historic Downtown Farmer's Market.
   With her senior year looming Gorman plans to live
out the tradition of attending Texas A&M University.
She credits her parents for helping her to be the best
she can be. She also thanks the TCA and ACF for pro-
viding the opportunities she has received.

Words work!
By Michael A. Guido, D.D
   Hearing had become a rather serious problem for
him as he aged. So, Grandpa decided to purchase a
hearing aid. After completing the various tests and ad-
justments, he began to wear it with much enjoyment.
Everyone was delighted that he was more responsive
and involved during their conversations. However, no
one saw the small, almost invisible device in his ear.
   Delighted at how his life had improved, he went back
to visit his doctor to thank him for his help. As he was
