Josh Kleinbaum In Glendale, students do not need to worry about whether their school has a bathroom with running water. Until three years ago, though, preschool students at a church in Mexicali, Mexico, did not have that luxury. Their school, run by a pastor with the United Methodist Church who personally picks up each student every morning, did not have running water. Then, as part of an annual service project, a group of kids from the First United Methodist Church of Glendale helped build a new schoolhouse.

Midge Boardman, People GLENDALE -- Do dreams come true? Ask Betty Ricksecker. As a child in Glendale, she wanted to become a missionary or teacher. Today, she believes she has accomplished both goals. For the past 30 years, she has been director of the Grandview Presbyterian Church School -- and loves it. "In my heart of hearts, it's really a mission," she said, "not just a job." Ricksecker entered the field of childhood education because of a friend's accident.
