After serving as a popular superintendent of Baltimore County public schools for 16 years, Robert Y. Dubel retired in 1992. "I didn't stay retired for too long," he said in an interview. "I took a part-time job right away at College Park in the College of Education teaching in the master's and doctoral programs, and when it started moving toward a full-time position, I quit in 1997." He still does a little educational consulting and returns to the University of Maryland occasionally to lecture delegations from China about elementary and secondary education.

With a name tag reading "Dr. Marty Smith" affixed to her jacket, the president of Anne Arundel Community College stood before a group of high school students and their families at a reception last week.

"In addition to welcoming you, I want to congratulate you for your decision to continue your education," said Smith, who in the 1980s became the first female president of a Maryland public college or university.
