Thank you for the commentary regarding the challenge facing women in construction ( "Construction: a boy's club," July 14). I know about it from experience. From 2007 to mid-2008, I received scholarships and worker retraining at a technical school for building construction. Out of 100 students, I was one of four who achieved an associate of applied science degree during that time. I then received direct entry into the apprentice 3.5-year program to become a union carpenter. I was lucky to receive six months of work each year.

Don Cooke didn't know much about the college honors society he joined two years ago, aside from the fact that it made him eligible for more scholarships. That changed when he became head of Phi Theta Kappa's public relations at Anne Arundel Community College. Cooke said he learned more about the 90-year-old honors society for students at two-year colleges and its commitment to public service and leadership. Newly inspired, he realized that his campus chapter could be doing a lot more. "We really didn't look beyond the borders of the campus," said Cooke, now the chapter president.

Howard Community College student Katie Dunklee won't name the four-year school - her top choice - that turned her down for admission out of high school, but nowadays she doesn't lament the rejection. In fact, to hear the Elkridge resident tell it, the snub, though disheartening at the time, has proved to be beneficial. Surely her performance at HCC bolsters that claim. She has a 4.0 grade-point average, has become a leader of her junior college honor society and last month was awarded two national scholarships for her academic achievements.

As a mother, Howard Community College student Sonia Halboni believes she always has her children's best interests at heart, yet she can remember once when her peers didn't concur. When her daughter, Daliah, graduated from Marriotts Ridge High School two years ago and couldn't assemble enough financial aid to enroll at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, Sonia suggested she enroll at HCC - where mom was already both a student and an office assistant in the school's science division office.

When Mark Chewning was a kid, he dreamed of being an artist. But at some point, the Baltimore resident's dream became all but dormant, giving way to about 27 years in the photograph-retouching business and a stint as supermarket deli clerk, as well as marriage, parenting, unemployment, divorce and self-doubt. Last week, Chewning, 54, was honored as the Student of the Year at Howard Community College. The single parent says his dream of becoming an artist will probably never come to fruition.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has renewed the operating license of the Peach Bottom nuclear power plant for another 20 years. The power plant is operated by Exelon Generation Co. and is just across the Pennsylvania border from Cardiff. Its license approval comes after the plant received high marks for safety in its annual assessment by federal regulators earlier this year. "They operated in a manner that protected the health and public safety" of the people living near the plant last year, Mohamed Shanbaky, an official with the NRC, told residents attending the plant's annual safety inspection meeting in March.
