Athena Kan, a sophomore at River Hill High School, did not have to look very far to learn the values of volunteering. Her parents, Kenny and Henrietta, are largely responsible for Athena's volunteering spirit. The family has participated in American Heart Association walks in Howard County and Baltimore for years. "When life gets hectic, we find that volunteering as a family is a powerful way to strengthen family life with a beneficial purpose," Kenny said. Athena, 14, was named the Howard County Youth Volunteer of the Year last month for her involvement with a number of charities, including a foundation she and her sister, Tiffany, started last year - Coalition Halting Obesity in Children Everywhere.

When Tomi Williams moved to Howard County from Ann Arbor, Mich., as a sixth-grader, he made a huge effort to make new friends. Sometimes, he says, he went a bit too far, becoming the class clown to get their attention. When his efforts backfired, his mother opted for a year and a half of home schooling midway through seventh grade. Williams later arrived at River Hill High School grounded and mature enough to win over not only his schoolmates but peers throughout the county. Now a junior, Williams was recently named next year's student member to the county Board of Education, earning the votes of students in middle and high schools.

No, it's not the much-ballyhooed Base Realignment and Closing, or BRAC, bonanza, though those jobs are welcome. The likely establishment of a beefed-up cyber-security agency and the addition of up to 15,000 new jobs beyond what BRAC is bringing will have a major impact, not to mention 14,000 jobs from increased hiring by the National Security Agency.
