Opening Doors for High School Girls

According to a report published by the National Center for Women & Information Technology, the number of women holding computer-related jobs peaked at 36% in 1991. It’s been in decline ever since. Considering how technology-dependent our society has become, that spells bad news. It’s especially concerning for an area filled with companies that deliver cutting edge products and services to the Federal government.

So how, then, do we turn this trend around and encourage young women to go into technical fields? Enter the Girls in Technology Mentor-Protégé program.

Girls in Technology helps high school girls develop skills needed to architect an academic and professional future in technology. It’s a volunteer organization that relies on the generosity of corporate sponsorships.

Public Invited to Dedication of Damascus Skate Park

From the Office of Public Information for Montgomery County:

A public ceremony dedicating the new skate park at the Damascus Community Center will be held on Friday, April 15 at 4 p.m.  The center is located at 25520 Oak Drive, Damascus.

            The park, called Ryan’s Inspiration Skate Park, is being dedicated to Ryan Didone, the son of Montgomery County Police Captain Thomas Didone.  Ryan was a sophomore at Damascus High School when he died in 2008 in a car accident at the age of 15.  Capt. Didone has been actively involved in an effort to ensure that the skate park was built.  The Didone family donated the funds to pay for materials for the park and the Damascus Lions Club will be responsible for maintaining the skate park.
