It has been a decade since Mary Pat Seurkamp arrived in Baltimore to become the first permanent lay president of the College of Notre Dame of Maryland. "It doesn't seem possible 10 years have gone by," Seurkamp, 60, said from her office on the North Charles Street campus. "It has been so busy, but a good sort of busy." Seurkamp has presided over Notre Dame at a time when women's colleges across the country, and here in Maryland, have been admitting men, a move seen as necessary for survival.

Sea creatures nibbled air bubbles in their tanks, as sea lovers noshed on goodies from a boatload of Baltimore restaurants. In the splashy gathering: Peter B. Rosenwald II, event chair; Chris Padgett, event co-chair; Ken Trout, National Aquarium board chair; Tom Brady, board member; Dave Pittenger, aquarium executive director; Kathy Sher, aquarium deputy director; Mary Pat Seurkamp, president of Notre Dame College of Maryland; Bill Fine, WBAL-TV president and general manager; Dr. Rosetta Stith, Paquin School director; Dick Ruess, partner at Metrobuilt, LC; Lisa Shea, Northrop Grumman human resource generalist; Dr. Mike Wise, aquarium veterinary consultant; Hugh Mohler, Bay National Bank president; Dr. Betty Morgan, Baltimore schools chief academic officer; Bill White, Motley Fool director of sales; Attison Barnes, partner at Gardner Carton & Douglas; Nancy Hinds, Baltimore Area Convention and Visitors Association director of communications; Toba Barth, Theatrical Arts Productions director of education; and Marc Kantrowitz, Chevy Chase Bank Challenge managing director.

The excitement was palpable, as soon as you entered the College of Notre Dame's Doyle Hall. More than 100 women attended a VIP reception before the evening's big event, a discussion of the book "Womenomics: Write Your Own Rules for Success." It wasn't just that guests had the opportunity to meet the book's authors, Claire Shipman of ABC News' "Good Morning America" and Katty Kay of BBC World News America. The topic - how women can use their power to create work lives they really want - seemed to strike a chord.

As the old nursery rhyme goes, if girls are made of "sugar and spice and everything nice," then the Distinguished Women's Award Reception 2001 for the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland certainly gave some evidence of that. As soon as you entered the Woodholme Country Club ballroom, you were greeted with the aroma of sugar and cinnamon. The buffet abounded with freshly baked cakes and cookies. But the sweet atmosphere also reflected the feel-good essence of the get-together as the organization honored five local women for their values, skills, knowledge and leadership.
