Glenelg is a compromise. Situated in western Howard County, the area is ideal for couples who commute to Baltimore or Washington. And it is in the country without the in-the-middle-of-nowhere isolation. "It offers a rural lifestyle within minutes of suburban amenities," says Sharon Keeny, a Realtor who lives in Dayton and is a former president of the Glenelg High School Parent-Teacher-Student Association. Glenelg takes its name from a village in western Scotland. The name is also a language quirk known as a palindrome, meaning it is spelled the same forward and backward.

Lauren Mundy, a Glenelg High School senior, spends most of her afternoons going on rounds with Dr. Fred Lewis, a Clarksville-based equine veterinarian. They see three to four horses on a typical day, and Mundy applies bandages, checks teeth and confers with Lewis on possible courses of action. Lewis, in turn, is helping Mundy with a research paper on equine metabolic syndrome, a condition that causes his four-legged patients to grow unaccountably overweight. The arrangement, which lets Mundy earn school credit and explore a career path while giving Lewis a valuable helper, is part of a Gifted and Talented Intern/Mentor Program offered at all Howard County high schools.
