North County graduates Julian Lane and Alexandria Thomas say that while they excelled academically and personally, racial tension at school often made it an uncomfortable experience.
Both Julian Lane and Alexandria Thomas will graduate from North County High School Tuesday with GPAs above 4.0 and attend prestigious colleges. Lane, 18, will attend Johns Hopkins University on a full scholarship to study neuroscience on a pre-med track. He hopes to be a neurosurgeon one day. “I just wanted to do something different. I didn’t want to be like the average kid that just goes to school or ends up dropping out,” he said of his interest in neuroscience. “I’ve wanted to do it since middle school.

Glen Burnie volunteer Chuck Eremchuk has spent 85 years living life to the fullest and helping others do the same.
“I have always been the kind of guy who looks forward to the next decade. When I was a teenager I couldn’t wait to be in my 20s. When I was in my 20s I couldn’t wait to be in my 30s,” Alexander “Chuck” Eremchuk said. “Now, I am looking forward to being 90, but I have another goal, too—I want to be one of Willard Scott’s Smucker People.” In order to meet that goal Chuck has to keep on kicking, or in his case dancing, for another fifteen years. After spending two hours with him last week, I have no doubts that he will. Eremchuk tells me that he is a New York City boy and of this I have no doubt. He is New York through and through. But what came through most in the two hours I sat talking with Eremchuk last week is his heart. Chuck Eremchuk …
