Sydney Miller, a 15-year-old sophomore at Broadneck High School in Annapolis, lost more than 30 pounds after switching to a vegan diet and giving up all processed foods last year. She also helped her dad, Todd Miller, lose weight. "I eat completely clean," she says. "Adults come up to me and ask me how I do it. " Sydney, who is hoping to be a nutritionist, is sharing her interest in eating well through a multimedia project she created for BeeQuest, a national competition that asks high school students the question: "What's Nutrition Mean to You?"

Students at Baltimore International College are being thrown under the bus. The school is closing, and as of August 31, it will not be considered an accredited college. Students must now find another college to continue their education. Most students like myself have already purchased books for a semester that was supposed to start July 11. Those who depended on work study are now unemployed. We also now face new college application fees and charges for other documents we may need.

More than two dozen Johns Hopkins University students and staff painted the corridors of the 29th Street Community Center on Saturday as part of the school's annual President's Day of Service. Among them was the university's president himself. Crouching on his knees with brush in hand to cover a few hard-to-reach spots on the walls outside the center's main office, Hopkins President Ronald J. Daniels modeled roles he wanted students to play when he launched the community service day in 2009.

It was gratifying to see the photograph of the Johns Hopkins students who have developed the new device, "FastStitch," for closing abdominal wounds ("The Future of Suture?" Nov. 1). Why? Because they were such a conglomeration of ethnicities and races and cultures. I hope the young supporters of the perennial isolationist presidential candidate Ron Paul will see the value in our porous borders. Students, and permanent residents, come to this country, make their contributions, and either stay, making ours a better place to live, or take their knowledge home and make their own countries better.

Johns Hopkins University students are brainy about many things. University officials are the first to admit that walking isn't one of them. In the wake of a program last spring that included giving students "I Practice Safe X-ing" T-shirts, Hopkins is stepping up its efforts to make sure students are walking safely with what it's calling its “Road Scholar” campaign. Baltimore will notice it, too, as thousands of canary-colored shoes start appearing today near the intersection of St. Paul and 33rd streets.

For Austin Bradburn, a fresh cup of coffee, brewed and delivered during the busy early-morning hallway rush, became an unlikely path into the complex social world of his high school. Bradburn and eight fellow Patapsco High School special-education students began brewing coffee in their Patriot Java Stop last December, an idea launched by their teachers as a way to give the students real-world skills for their life after high school. "Nothing we have ever done has given them so many gains," said Dana Evans, who has taught the students with Beth Gray for the past dozen years.

Aya Dixon, 15, has dreams of working for a top design house before eventually branching off to create her own line of couture. Up until now, her only brush with that industry was thumbing through glossy magazines or watching reality shows on television. That changed Wednesday when the Baltimore Design School sophomore got a chance to mingle with the likes of Anna Wintour, popular designer and "Project Runway" judge Zac Posen and other big names in the fashion industry. Dixon was part of a group of 10 students from Baltimore Design School who attended the White House's first Fashion Education Workshop, led by first lady Michelle Obama.

This summer, Arne Duncan, the U.S. secretary of education, startled public school systems nationwide by shifting the focus of enforcement of federal laws covering students with disabilities from technical compliance like timelines to accountability for academic outcomes. The shift has seismic impact, plunging the number of states who fully meet federal requirements from 41 to 18. Maryland, despite laudable efforts, is one of the fallen states. Parents of students with disabilities think the change in policy is long overdue.

They are as well-versed in 3-D printing, weaving and the anthropology of fashion as they are in classic looks from Chanel and Dior. Students in the Maryland Institute College of Art s fibers program approach fashion from an unusual perspective. Although the college does not offer a traditional fashion design curriculum, graduates are creating inventive garments informed by education rooted in a sensual - and intellectual - understanding of textiles. "Fashion is a cultural force that relates to how we communicate ideas, values, fears and aspirations, our sense of belonging, and our ideas around gender and class," said fibers department chair Valeska Populoh.

Comptroller Peter Franchot, by starting a petition drive, has embarked on a policy initiative to require all Maryland public schools start the school calendar after Labor Day. His policy proposal is given political cover through a commission report from the "Task Force to Study a Post-Labor Start Date for Maryland Public Schools. " That commission report is flawed, and I believe misguided. It will have deleterious consequences that have not been fully considered. The tagline for his campaign, "Let Summer Be Summer," speaks volumes.
