The Greater Baltimore Committee honored Shock Trauma’s Dr. Thomas M. Scalea and former Baltimore County Executive Donald Mohler at its 64th Annual Meeting on May 13, 2019 before more than 1,000 GBC members and guests who attended the event, held at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel.
The GBC honored with awards the work of individuals who, over the years, have made significant contributions to the region.
The GBC presented Thomas M. Scalea, MD, Physician-in-Chief, R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, with the Regional Visionary Award and Donald Mohler, former Baltimore County Executive with the Walter Sondheim Jr. Public Service Award.
Since 1997, the GBC has presented Regional Visionary Awards to individuals who have significantly contributed to the betterment of the Greater Baltimore region. The award has been presented to political, education and business leaders for their vision and roles in improving the region.
Dr. Scalea, who has served as Physician-in-Chief since 1997, was honored with the Regional Visionary Award for his unwavering commitment to saving lives in Baltimore and around the globe.
The Walter Sondheim Public Service Award is presented to individuals, other than elected officials, who make outstanding contributions to the community without seeking recognition or accolades. Since 2007, the GBC has bestowed awards occasionally but not annually.
Mohler, who in May 2018 assumed the role of Baltimore County Executive following the untimely death of County Executive Kevin Kamenetz, who tragically died from a heart attack, was honored with the Walter Sondheim Public Service Award for his outstanding contributions to the community without seeking accolades.
Following the awards presentation, former U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein spoke about his experience serving as U.S. Deputy Attorney General from April 25, 2017, following his Senate confirmation, to May 11, 2019, the effective date of his resignation. Rosenstein served as the United States Attorney for the District of Maryland from 2005 to 2017.
