Tawanda Clark is a true Baltimorean who loves to eat Maryland Blue Crabs with family and friends. She has two brilliant sons who attended Baltimore City Public Schools (BCPSS). Tawanda understands in a very personal way the benefits of being a CollegeBound scholar; her eldest son was a CollegeBound Foundation scholarship recipient in 2017. Tawanda has a passion for the BCPSS students, believing they can soar and become successful college graduates with the proper guidance from someone who has “been there and done that.” Tawanda is a graduate of the BCPSS, and she has acquired an Associate of Arts in Business Management from The Community College of Baltimore County and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from The University of Baltimore. Tawanda spent two years in the Baltimore City school system as a long‐term substitute teacher for various schools, while there she developed a love for teaching students phonics and reading comprehension. Tawanda believes that her experience with CollegeBound, her passion to see the Baltimore City students soar, and her life journey are the keys she needs to serve our scholars well.
