United Way of Central Md. has new board chairwoman

"We are fortunate to tap into the talents and leadership qualities of these exemplary professionals," said Mark Furst, president of United Way of Central Maryland. "They will help guide our organization as we focus on advancing education, income and health for those most vulnerable in our community."

Brown has been active with the United Way for more than a decade, including service on the board of directors, Women's Leadership Council and Tocqueville Society.

The members new to the board are Donald G. Kohlhafer, senior vice president for Bank of America; Patricia Lambert, principal at Pessin Katz Law; and Jennifer N. Lockhart, a practice administrator at Johns Hopkins Community Physicians.
