SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.VA. Local elected officials and others attended a dedication Sunday at Jefferson High School to celebrate a $15.3 million renovation of the school, but some parents and students had other things on their minds. About 30 students and parents staged a protest at the school, taking exception to the way school officials have reacted to a break-in at the school on March 30 that allegedly involved 15 students. Group members said they are upset because they have heard felony charges like grand larceny might be filed against the students.

Thumbs down to everyone in the Maryland General Assembly who feels it's OK to hold an educational institution such as the University System of Maryland-Hagerstown hostage as a lever to get more money for their own projects. Getting more students to earn college degrees is good for the entire state, not just Washington County. The state needs a "maintenance of effort" law so that USM centers receive at least as much each year as they did during the last. Thumbs down to the members of Washington County's Delegation to the Maryland General Assembly who propose holding up repair of the historic Funkstown bridge while an impact study is done on the impact of closings on local businesses.

HAGERSTOWN -- It was a double graduation year in every way for 18-year-old twins Anjoli and Aurielle Rowe, who not only completed high school as co-valedictorians but also received their associate degrees with a 4.0 grade-point average. When they were seventh-graders, the sisters learned they could attend Hagerstown Community College at the age of 16. With that knowledge came a goal that prompted them to make the switch from their public school to home schooling. "We just found out you could go to college at 16, and we both wanted to get two years out of the way," Anjoli said.

Anthony Cory Ham, a Jefferson High School senior, would have been the first in his family to graduate from high school if a tragic accident last month had not claimed his young life. Instead, his cap and gown were presented to his mother and other family members in an emotional ceremony at the beginning of Jefferson High School's 40th commencement exercises Sunday afternoon in Shepherd University's Butcher Center. Ham, 18, who died in late April when a gun he was handling accidentally went off, planned to move back to Indiana and pursue a degree in medicine.

"Shame on the Westfields parent who is concerned about the student population that may attend Rockland Woods - oh, I mean Harvard Elementary of Washington County. These comments surely point out that socio-economic and segregationist mentality is still alive and well in our fair county. I have lived in Hagerstown and Washington County my entire life and attending school in three different city schools that were extremely diverse. These school prepared me well enough to later earn a bachelor's in mathematics and master's degree in management.
