Nearly a third of Century's first graduating class marked the end of their high school careers with presentations yesterday showing experiences that enriched their last year at the school. Kathy Ohlhaber, 18, screened The Seven Deadly Sins of High School, which she wrote, cast, directed and edited. Tallulah Pollard, 18, rode her chestnut stallion, Image, to school and talked about how she plans to own and run stables. And Sam Moore, 18, sat at a potter's wheel and crafted bowls from mounds of clay, a hobby that he said helped him relax while taking four Advanced Placement courses this year.

DEAR STUDENTS: Like many of you, I am a member of the first generation in my family to go to college. As a result of the Nazi invasion of Poland and the subsequent Holocaust, my father lost his parents and sister and was deprived of even a high school education. My mother, who at 14 fled with her parents from Austria, was a splendid student even though she didn't know a word of English before arriving in America. All set to enroll in college, her plans were permanently derailed by the death of her father shortly after her high school graduation and by the need for her to find a job to support her mother.

Once a month the Joppatowne High Nature Club treks out to a creek a half-mile from the school in the belief that on its muddy bank they can learn how they and others can stem the tide of pollution locally.As they head for the creek, the Foster Branch -- which eventually empties into Chesapeake Bay -- they lug kits filled with small jars, test tubes, nets and charts. Once at water's edge, they go to work, gathering samples to later test for pollutants.As members of the school's Nature Club, the students see their work as taking their concern for the environment beyond purely academic discussion and forging it into action within their community.

Students struggling in tougher courses As a junior at Chesapeake High School, I am not at all surprised to read the article "Teens struggle for a C average" (Dec. 28). Ever since this school year started, many of my fellow students have been falling behind in their studies, failing their courses due to course overload and switching books day to day. Some students have been unable to keep up with this schedule, including myself. What is the county planning on doing about this? It's absolutely appalling to hear that Dr. Eric J. Smith doesn't seem to worry about the drop in averages.

Nearly everyone in the hallways and classrooms at North County High School in Glen Burnie knew Walter Brooks Jr. They didn't know him because he was one of the school's top athletes or one of its top students when he graduated last spring. He was neither. Most knew him because of an oversize personality that his friends and family say was matched only by the size of his heart. Brooks, 18, died Wednesday after a brief illness; his parents said they were told by doctors that the cause was swine flu. "Everyone loved Walter," said Andrea Hunt, who had known Brooks since the sixth grade and became best friends with him in high school.

Everything happens for a reason. And in my case, the reason stuff happens is so I can write it down in this weekly column documenting my joyful, unremarkable life. My son signed up in June to take the September LSAT, only to discover that all of the test centers in the Baltimore-Washington area were filled. My husband, whose turn it was to flog the dead horse of preparedness, remarked: "What does this tell you about the type of people who sign up to take the LSAT?" My son replied: "Obviously, they are a group of very uptight, type-A people."
