Arundel students deserve praise

I enjoyed your article regarding the students from Arundel High School who raised funds for a community in Kenya to have computers and books ("From Quidditch to Kenya," July 31). What a heartwarming story about young people from a public high school who are making a difference.

Too often, all we hear about are the troublemakers and thugs in public schools. There are lots of young people out there who are interested in service and deserve recognition as well. But maybe next time this could be front page news instead of running in the Sunrise section that many folks don't have time to read!
