Her largest contributor: a Baltimore County manufacturer of medical diagnostic tools that donated $300 and several cartons of barely used volumes."I was amazed at the response," said Foertsch, who wrote to Becton Dickinson Microbiology Systems at the suggestion of a friend who worked for the Sparks company.

It was a long summer for former Glen Burnie High business education teacher Joyce Coleman. In June she was laid off after 18 years in the school. She wasn't sure what she'd do next.Coleman found solace amid doubt in the thought of 200 students protesting her layoff in front of the school and their parents pleading with board members to not fire her.And on Sept. 4, she was asked to return to the classroom. This time, it would be in the county's vocational education program."If this hadn't worked out, I would have probably taken a neighbor's offer to work with an alternative program for young adults that people have given up on," Coleman said.
