Posted 12.19.12

December 19, 2012- Jan Moylan Wagner, president, Central Scholarship in Baltimore recently completed an eight-month long leadership development program presented by Leadership Maryland.

Leadership Maryland, celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, honored this Easton resident and her statewide classmates at a black-tie reception and dinner held December 4, 2012 at the Renaissance Harborplace Hotel in Baltimore.

Leadership Maryland, an independent, educational leadership development organization, informs top level executives from the public and private sectors about the critical issues, challenges and opportunities facing the State of Maryland, and its regions.  After participating in a broad range of experiences, these statewide leaders are prepared to address these issues and serve as important participants in the unified effort to shape Maryland’s future.

“To be informed about statewide and regional issues, and having the opportunity to engage and interact with leaders who put themselves on the front line every day, has prepared these individuals to be the catalyst for positive change in Maryland,” stated Leadership Maryland Board Chairman Ralph W. Emerson, Jr.  A 2003 graduate of the program, Mr. Emerson is senior vice president of M&T Bank in Baltimore.

“These are the leaders to watch, now, and in the future,” said Leadership Maryland president and CEO Nancy Minieri.  “Their experience confirms that the quality of leadership affects the success of the solutions.  Problems are solved when committed, dynamic and informed leaders, with vision and passion, are willing to take the risk to lead.”

 Central Scholarship enables students to pursue education or training after high school through scholarship opportunities and interest-free loans that fund the gap after all other financial aid has been awarded.  Established in 1924 and with over $1 million in scholarships awarded annually, we screen student applications against dozens of scholarship opportunities according to criteria established by our donors.  With a deep connection to our students and the local community, our uniqueness is in our approach:  we are investing in the future of our students, their families and the neighborhoods in which they live.
