Your reporters did a fine job in discussing Nancy Grasmick's productive career and sterling performance as state superintendent of schools ("Grasmick announces she'll retire in June," March 31). The accolades were earned and well-deserved.
I do, however, wish to speak to one glaring omission, namely, Ms. Grasmick's outstanding service in the Baltimore County Public Schools. We are very proud that she served the BCPS in superb fashion as principal, area assistant superintendent, as assistant superintendent in instruction and associate superintendent of administration. She was sorely missed when she left Baltimore County to serve in the state government.
We wish Ms. Grasmick happiness and good health in the state of retirement she so richly deserves.
