Daekwan Jacobs, a second year Saturday Leadership fellow, and senior at Baltimore City College, has been named a Rays of Hope Scholar by the Black Professional Men (BPM). The Black Professional Men Rays of Hope Scholarship recognizes African-American male students that have consistently demonstrated exceptional character and academic performance. In addition, the Program seeks students who participate in school or community activities and exhibit strong leadership and communication skills.
Daekwan is an exceptional student who has shown his leadership skills consistently in the Saturday Leadership Program, and we are proud to see him achieve this honor. The GBUL staff has worked with him to prepare him throughout the application process, and we congratulate him once again.
We also want to thank Black Professional Men, who also sponsor our auxiliary group, the Greater Baltimore Leadership Association (GBLA) for their Young Professional Masquerade Ball on February 7th. For more info on the event and sponsorship, visit www.gblaimpact.org.
