Congratulations to Reservoir High School being recognized by the state as a Maryland STEM Innovation School. Only two schools in Howard County have this designation for their work in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. They were chosen because of their Project Lead the Way Pre-Engineering Academy, their STEM speaker series, Robotics Club, and many other initiatives. They also had the highest percentage of the student body enrolled in technology education for high schools in the state.

You looked so lovely on your wedding day but what do you do with that wedding dress now? Why not donate it to Cherie Amour at the Savage Mill. This upscale bridal resale shop supports Success in Style. They also resell mother of the bride or groom dresses, bridesmaid dresses, veils, shoes and tuxedos. You can just donate them to Charity's Closet or use the drop off boxes out front of the Mill. What a great way to free up room in your closet and help others. While clearing out that closet do not forget that Charity's Closet is looking for business clothes for both men and women of all sizes. All sales support helping Success in Style find community members new jobs and futures.

I want to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving.
