Grasmick says future is bright for women in leadership and education


We love smart people at Baltimore Positive. That’s how we learn.

And no one makes a better case for the importance of education than Nancy Grasmick, who is a legend by any measure in local leadership and the power of public schools.

In the finale of our trio of chats at Jennings Cafe in Catonsville, Nestor quizzes Grasmick on the legend of her husband Lou and his best friend John Steadman. And Don gets us educated on the leadership role Grasmick is still a massive part of at Towson University and beyond with women and education.

We are on vacation from live Baltimore Positive events but will have a full schedule next week for August and beyond with guests Ben Cardin, Johnny Olszewski, Ben Jealous and many others coming to our podcasts and videos. Our next event is on Friday, August 9th at 9am with U.S Senator Chris Van Hollen at State Fare in Catonsville. Come join us for a breakfast conversation with great food and chatter.

Next week, Baltimore Positive will feature Matthew Gallagher of Goldseker Foundation discussing the role foundations have in making our city better.

Stay cool. Hydrate. Enjoy your summer!

We’ll keep the Baltimore Positive mojo coming with more guests and sponsors coming aboard to support our efforts!
