Digital Harbor High School is a diverse, inclusive and successful school that prepares students for computer technology careers, college and productive citizenship. Recent media coverage about tensions among small groups of black and Latino students would suggest a divisive culture, but nothing could be further from the truth. Our demographics, philosophy and daily dealings with each other belie such a notion. Our 1,352 students - roughly three quarters of which are male to one quarter female - come from every sector of the city and 35 countries.

It was just a moment of poor teenage judgment: One student threw a marker across a classroom at Digital Harbor High, sparking an argument between a Latino student and a black student. Since they couldn't fight in class, they agreed to meet after school on Federal Hill. The fight was a nasty one, and the Latino boy was sent to the hospital with a concussion. Then word spread, and though school leaders believe the incident wasn't about race, it was impressions that mattered last week.

Destiny Hartis had made up her mind. She would be elected Digital Harbor High School's prom queen at the school's senior prom on May 15, she remembers thinking that night -- even if it meant spending part of the dance gathering votes from her fellow classmates. "It was my day," said Hartis, 20, who attended the end-of-year event with her cousin, Kerstin Jones, in a long blue dress. "I was going to win. " And she did -- becoming the Baltimore high school's first transgender student in faculty memory to walk away with the prom queen's crown and sash.

Now in its fourth year, the event -- to take place Saturday at 1 p.m. at Camden Yards -- will feature two 25-man teams comprised of players from a mixture of 18 public and private schools. Lester Davis, the director of communications and media relations for City Council President Bernard "Jack" Young, said the new format better lends itself to building relationships between players from diverse social and economic backgrounds.
