Baltimore Sun Business and Civic Hall of Fame 2020: selection committee

When The Sun created its Maryland Business and Civic Hall of Fame in 2016, it set out to honor those who have made profound contributions to our area in a wide variety of ways. But choosing the most deserving among the many civic and business leaders in the region is no easy task. To help ensure a broad pool of potential nominees each year, we seek the assistance of our readers and a distinguished panel of community leaders.

This year’s selection committee includes one member who has served on the panel since its inception — Greater Baltimore Committee President and CEO Donald C. Fry — as well as six of our previous Hall of Fame inductees: businessman Michael Cryor, Abell Foundation President Robert C. Embry Jr., law professor Larry Gibson, former state schools superintendent Nancy S. Grasmick, public relations executive Sandy Hillman, and corporate board director Patricia “P.J.” Mitchell. Rounding out the team was Jackie Copeland, the former executive director of the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture.

The group offered suggestions for nominees earlier this year, which The Sun considered, along with recommendations from the public and others, to make the final selection. We deeply appreciate their time and thoughtfulness in helping ensure that we compile the strongest possible 2020 class of inductees.
