Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) May 23, 2012
Dr. Freeman Hrabowski III is well known for many reasons: transforming the science program at University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) into one of the most respected in the country; authoring two critically-acclaimed books, "Beating the Odds" and "Overcoming the Odds"; co-founding the lauded Meyerhoff Scholarship program; appearing in Spike Lee’s Academy Award-nominated documentary, "Four Little Girls"; and being chosen as one of seven of the Washington Post’s Top American Leaders.
