The Maryland Business Roundtable for Education
Divisional Sales Manager Barrett Wragg provides unparalleled customer service for T. Rowe Price, where he has worked for nearly 15 years. Dedicated to improving conditions for Maryland’s students, Barrett Wragg also works with the Maryland Business Roundtable for Education (MBRT) to help local students succeed.
Created in 1992 with the goal of helping Maryland students achieve more, MBRT would like to see every Maryland student graduate from high school ready to succeed, whether in a university setting or in his or her future career. MBRT recognizes certain problems within Maryland schools and works in partnership with local businesses and state government to enact positive change. Members identify key issues and work with local leadership to address these issues.
Students directly benefit through new curriculum as well as mentoring from MBRT members. In one of MBRT’s greatest achievements, visiting speakers from the Maryland Scholars Speakers Bureau address students from time to time. These volunteering business leaders motivate students, encouraging them to work hard now for great rewards later in life.
