1999: Freeman Hrabowski

University of Maryland Baltimore County President Freeman A. Hrabowski III earned the 1999 Marylander of the Year award for "his energy and missionary zeal to champion two trends that have transformed UMBC. On one of these he is a national authority. That is recruiting and nurturing excellence in mathematics and science among African-American men. The second is public university-private industry partnerships to spur technology, job opportunities and regional development."
