Rawlings-Blake to speak at UNCF luncheon

The UNCF Mayor’s Luncheon on education and workforce development will be Tuesday, Feb. 18, at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel.

Stephanie Rawlings-Blake will give a presentation on why supporting minority education is critical to achieving a thriving Baltimore economy and national economy at the event presented by the United Negro College Fund, a GBC member.

“As we continue to strive for education equality at UNCF, we look forward to engaging more community leaders in our work so that we can increase the number of students we serve and get more of Baltimore’s young people to and through college,” said UNCF Area Development Director Tony Covington in a press release.

UNCF’s primary focus is on serving minority and underrepresented students from low to moderate income families. Sixty percent of UNCF scholars are the first in their families to attend college, and 65 percent are from families with an annual household income less than $30,000.

Donors and local partners are the foundation of UNCF’s ability to award scholarships to Baltimore area students and cash grants to colleges and universities in the Greater Baltimore Area.

The luncheon will begin with registration and networking at 11:30 a.m. and lunch at noon. The Greater Baltimore Committee joins The Baltimore Sun and BGE as sponsors of the Mayor’s Luncheon.
