Glen Burnie High School art teacher Allison Butler recalled once winning a Kindle during a teacher development session, and last year she secured a $500 grant to purchase cameras for her class. That was the extent of her prize earnings before Wednesday, when she sat before students, faculty and Anne Arundel school officials to receive a $2,000 grant as part of a national Unsung Heroes Awards Competition sponsored by the company ING. Actually, make that a $27,000 grant. Butler sat stunned, then burst into tears when company officials announced that, in addition to the $2,000 grant, she also won the overall 2013 Unsung Heroes $25,000 first-place award, beating out 1,300 applicants nationwide.

The devil may have taken Skylar Marion away, his father says, but God had to figure out how to spread him around. Skylar, a 15-year-old Chesapeake High School freshman who loved to tinker with bicycles and spend time outdoors, was killed in a hit-and-run just a quarter-mile from his home in Pasadena in April. The driver of the vehicle that hit him has yet to be found. But in a turn of events that surprised two families in the tight-knit Pasadena community, part of Skylar will continue to live on. His heart, transplanted into the body of an ailing friend, will bind two families together for the rest of their lives.

A group of Chesapeake High School alumni have banded together to create a scholarship fund in memory of William Norman, the school's long-retired first principal, who was killed this month in Florida. The scholarship, which will be called the Dr. William H. Norman Endowment Fund, is in the early planning stages and will be supported entirely by alumni, at least to start.

A monthly Storytime at Essex Library includes all the trappings familiar to its pre-school participants — books, puppets, songs, games and a crafts table. But this program, organized by Spanish language students at a nearby high school, gives children the chance to listen, sing and play in two languages. "Welcome to la granja, amigos," said Chesapeake High School sophomore Amanda Ambrose, who donned a straw hat and jeans in keeping with farm theme of the hour. During the bilingual story hour, the hosts switch back and forth from English to Spanish as they read to and entertain the children.

The Anne Arundel County teachers union is criticizing the school system's decision to allow some schools to set their own minimum benchmarks for grades, saying that the practice may undermine countywide standards of excellence. School officials said that some schools have implemented a grade minimum — in some cases, 50 percent — for students who complete assignments or exams and show effort. The changes come as the school system has moved away from letter grades at the end of marking periods.
