For someone not accustomed to having things handed to her on a silver platter, Nicole Clarke has had an exceptional year. After four years of hard work at Western High, Baltimore's elite public school for girls, Clarke was offered admission at some of the nation's most prestigious universities: Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, MIT and Johns Hopkins.

Eventually, the 17-year-old math and science whiz settled on Princeton, won over by its leafy campus and chemical engineering department.

Quite the opposite: Since she arrived at New Cathedral Cemetery to record the plats and keep the books nearly 35 years ago, she has cheered the place up. Certainly she has made people who visit New Cathedral feel better about it. "You made a very emotion-filled event much more comfortable," wrote a...
