Mayor Rawlings-Blake to Compete in "Are You Smarter than a BCP 5th Grader?"

Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and other local celebrities will compete with BCP students in the 2014 Are You Smarter than a BCP 5th Grader? Quiz Show. The Mayor has competed every year since 2012.

Mayor Rawlings-Blake is a regular visitor at BCP's three neighborhood charter schools. In August she visited City Springs Elementary/Middle School to kick off the new school year. She visited Wolfe Street Academy in October to congratulate students on their outstanding attendance and again in November to speak at the school's Lights On Afterschool event. Last March the Mayor held a press conference at Hampstead Hill Academy.

Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was sworn in as Baltimore’s 49th mayor on February 4, 2010. She had served as City Council President since November 2007. Rawlings-Blake was first elected to the Baltimore City Council in 1995 at age 25, the youngest person ever elected to the City Council. She represented the Council’s 5th District from 1995 to 2004 and the 6th District from 2004 to 2007, serving communities throughout West and Northwest Baltimore. She also served as Council Vice-President from 1999 to 2007. She  earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Oberlin College and received her Juris Doctor from the University of Maryland School of Law in 1995.

We would like to thank Mayor Rawlings-Blake for her ongoing support.
