State Superintendent to be Recognized as Influential Marylander

The Daily Record Cites Dr. Salmon’s Work in Education

BALTIMORE – Dr. Karen Salmon, Maryland’s State Superintendent of Schools, will be honored this week by The Daily Record as part of its list of 2017 Influential Marylanders. Dr. Salmon, along with 50 other recipients, will be recognized on Thursday, March 23, at The Grand Lodge of Maryland in Cockeysville.

Dr. Salmon and her fellow honorees were chosen for the significant impact they have had not only in their own field or community, but also in the state of Maryland. Each recipient was selected by editors of The Daily Record based on the contributions and leadership they have provided in the following areas: civic leadership, communications, education, finance, freestyle, general business, health care, law, philanthropy, real estate and technology.

“This year’s Influential Marylanders demonstrate an impressive record of accomplishment, leadership and vision,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “What they say is important, and what they do makes a difference in the lives of many in Maryland and beyond. The Daily Record is honored to recognize their accomplishments.”

To make its selection, The Daily Record maintains a running list of people throughout the year who have been at the forefront of some of the State’s most influential and innovative ideas, organizations and events. The team bases their choice on criteria such as community involvement, geographical diversity, stature, contributions, prominence, influence and most importantly how the potential nominee relates to others.

The Daily Record began its Influential Marylanders program in 2007 as a way to acknowledge and give back to those who have already given so much to Maryland. For more information about the 2017 Influential Marylander awards visit
