In 2018, LCMC established the Community Builder Awards to recognize the individuals, educators and business leaders who understand the power of education for social impact and empowerment. The connection between education and its power as an agent for community growth is not often made; our awardees’ work exemplifies this on a daily basis.
LCMC is proud to announce the following individuals as Community Builder Award recipients:
- Educator of the Year: Steve Maloney
- Business Leader of the Year: Ronald Gantt, GME McDonald’s
- Community Leader of the Year: C. Marie Taylor, Leadership Montgomery
All three distinguished winners will be presented with their awards during LCMC’s inaugural Community Builder Awards Reception on May 9, 2019 at Cesco Osteria in Bethesda, MD.
“We could not be more thrilled to honor these three incredible individuals for their efforts to leverage their professional expertise and relationships to support the success of all adult English learners,” said Gabriel Martinez Cabrera, Executive Director at LCMC. “The result of which is the advancement of bold initiatives to benefit all residents of Montgomery County. We look forward to honoring them at our upcoming Awards Reception in May.”

Additionally, the Community Builder Awards Reception would not be possible without the generosity of our sponsors including Capital Digestive Care, Il Pizzico, JBG, Mark Willcher & Co., and Steward Partners Global Advisory.
