|Harry Johnson, Esq.|
The Whitney Young Jr. Achievement Award is presented to a member of the community in recognition of their involvement in the development of scouting opportunities for youth from rural or low-income backgrounds. In Harry’s brief acceptance speech he spoke about his dad, who was a Boy Scout leader in Maryland in the early 1960s when Maryland was still segregated. His father led an all-black troop and had to deal with many issues stemming from racial inequality. But Harry’s father was a leader and helped these young boys, including his son, Harry, become leaders and contributing members of their community.
Harry is an accomplished attorney and partner at the law firm Whiteford, Taylor and Preston, yet he finds time to volunteer and give back to numerous organizations. In addition to serving as Chairman of the Board at GBMC, Harry is also very active with the Maryland State Bar Association including the Maryland State Bar Foundation board of directors as well as many others. Harry is a shining example of someone who has dedicated himself to giving back to the community, and GBMC has certainly benefited from Harry’s service and leadership. We are very proud of Harry and grateful for all that he has given to GBMC.
