Montgomery County Business Hall of Fame Has Raised $1.2 Million in Scholarship Funds in Eight Years
The eighth annual Montgomery County Business Hall of Fame (MCBHOF) has now raised more than $1.2 million in scholarship money for students at the Universities at Shady Grove (USG). This year, the event raised more than $200,000 with almost 400 people in attendance.
The MCBHOF, founded by Grossberg Company LLP and Revere Bank, has two missions: to honor outstanding business leaders in the county and to raise money for the USG Scholarship Fund.
The October 29th luncheon honored four new inductees into the Hall of Fame:
- Jane Fairweather, owner of The Jane Fairweather Team
- Bryant Foulger, chairman of board of directors of Foulger Pratt
- Linda Gooden, former executive vice president at Lockheed Martin
- Sophia Parker, CEO of DSFederal, Inc.
Since its inception, MCBHOF has honored 38 outstanding business leaders and raised money to support more than 900 students.
All net proceeds from MCBHOF benefit the scholarship programs at USG, the University System of Maryland’s regional educational center. USG brings nine Maryland public universities and more than 80 academic degree programs directly to Montgomery County on one campus.
