You can help St. Margaret School in Bel Air shine a little brighter with a few clicks on your phone or keyboard.

St. Margaret School, 141 N. Hickory Avenue, is in the midst of fierce competition, striving to earn the most votes in the Clorox Power A Bright Future contest.

I think you just topped her negativity with your own choice of words. You represent a Catholic school. You represent the faith. Think of the words Jesus would have used.
