Tom Geddes, CEO of Plank Industries, Bishop Sutton and Chad Steele at a fundraiser for Sutton Scholars, June 2, 2018

A message from the Director of Development in the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland, Kathy Grayson:

It is with deep gratitude and a burst of excitement that I announce that the Baltimore Ravens has named the Sutton Scholars® High School Enrichment Program as one of their nine Baltimore organizations to receive a donation from their Social Justice Program. I want to take this opportunity to thank our board member, Chad Steele, VP of PR for the Ravens, for his dedication to the Sutton Scholars program. “It takes a village to raise a child” and together, with the Ravens and all our other generous supporters, the village is mending and becoming stronger than ever.  Thank you, Chad, for believing that we can and will make a difference in the lives of our Sutton Scholars…the future leaders of our Baltimore! And thank you to all our generous donors and supporters of Sutton Scholars. We couldn’t do it without you. With gratitude and appreciation, I wish you the happiest of holidays, a Merry Christmas and a fruitful New Year!

Please see the story released by the Ravens today describing the nine organizations who will benefit from their social justice program, including Sutton Scholars.

Sutton Scholars® is an annual four-year program that recruits rising ninth grade Baltimore city public high school students, equipping them with essential life skills that prepare participants to lead productive and successful adult lives. The program includes a five-week summer session consisting of eight hours, five days per week of instruction and activities, as well as one-on-on year-round mentoring and support programs.
