ANNAPOLIS, MD (May 6, 2011) – On Monday, First Lady Judge Katie O’Malley will participate in the SEED School of Maryland building dedication ceremony to honor two of the school’s most significant donors: former Ravens owner Arthur Modell and his wife Patricia, and the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation.
The school has privately raised $30 million in funding since its opening, allowing it to add two dormitories and a temporary academic building, as well as start renovations on a permanent academic building with a state-of-the-art gym and cafeteria. School leadership is currently in the next steps of raising additional funds for the construction of a pool, auditorium, atrium and third dormitory.
The SEED School of Maryland is a statewide, college-preparatory, public boarding school, which combines a rigorous academic program with a nurturing boarding school program. In 2008, the SEED School of Maryland welcomed 80 energetic sixth-graders as the first students on its Maryland campus. The school presents underserved students from across the state with an extraordinary opportunity to receive a tuition-free education that prepares them for success in and beyond college. Ninety-five percent of SEED graduates go on to college.
