Governor Martin O’Malley has appointed a second Dundalk native to the board of trustees for the Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC).
CCBC announced earlier this week that Gloria McJilton, an associate agent for her family-owned agency, will join the school’s 15-member board of trustees. The Honorable Barbara Kerr Howe, a retired Baltimore County Circuit Court judge currently serving as a settlement judge for the Circuit Court for Baltimore County, is chair of CCBC Board of Trustees.
McJilton is the past chair and current member of the Baltimore County Commission on Arts and Sciences as well as a member of the Baltimore County Landmarks Preservation Commission, according to a press release from CCBC.
She is the current vice president of the Dundalk Chamber of Commerce and is a founding member and treasurer for the Greater Dundalk Alliance. She is also the past president and a current member of the Woman’s Club of Dundalk.
"As one who has always maintained a close association with the CCBC community, I feel honored to have been appointed to the Board of Trustees,” McJilton wrote in an e-mail to Patch. “CCBC is a true gem, and we in Baltimore County are very fortunate to have access to such a fine educational institution whose mission is to provide accessible, affordable and high-quality education that prepares students for transfer and career success, strengthens the regional workforce, and enriches our community.
“I am looking forward to working with the board and continuing the positive work that makes CCBC the highly regarded institution is today."
McJilton is an associate agent for her family-owned agency, McJilton Insurance Service, and serves as the vice president of McJilton Associates, Inc. She has been an insurance representative for more than 30 years and holds licenses in property, casualty, life and health insurance, according to a press release from CCBC.
She has received several honors for her work, including being named Dundalk’s Citizen of the Year in 2008 and awarded the Dundalk High School Distinguished Alumni Award in 2000.
McJilton joins another Dundalk resident, Gloria E. Nelson, on the CCBC Board of Trustees. Nelson, a manager in the staff development office of Maryland State Department of Human Resources, is active with groups in Turner Station, including the Turner Station Recreation Council and the Turner Station Community Conservation Team. In 2007, Nelson was honored with the Baltimore County Department of Recreation & Parks 2007 Shining Star Volunteer Award.
