Maryland State Trooper, Orioles To Provide Game Experience To Outstanding Baltimore City Students
(PIKESVILLE, Md.) — A group of well-deserving students from a Baltimore City school will have the chance to attend an upcoming Orioles game thanks to the hard work of a trooper and the generosity of the team.
The group of students from Booker T. Washington Middle School for the Arts will be attending the Orioles game against the Boston Red Sox, set for 3:05 p.m. on June 13 at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. The experience was organized by TFC Mark Mross, who has partnered with the school since 2016.
The mission of the program is to improve the relationship between the public and police in historically under-served communities by creating a school program which recognizes and awards exceptionally positive actions. The Orioles have donated 150 tickets, along with hats, T-shirts, food and transportation for the game.
The students selected for the experience are being recognized and rewarded for their extraordinary actions and positive behavior. Through this experience, the hope is to promote future engagement in positive behaviors among youth both in and outside of the school. When the police and the communities they serve work together, good things can happen.
