Congratulations to our 2020 Rising Stars Honorees!

Living Classrooms Rising Stars presented by the Baltimore Business Journal are a select group of Baltimore young professionals, under the age of 40, who are rising in their field and are recognized as young philanthropists.

Rising Stars is a Living Classrooms program aimed at engaging up-and-coming young professionals in philanthropy. Rising Stars honorees are nominated and selected based on their professional achievements and philanthropic efforts. Honorees participate in networking and philanthropic activities throughout the year and are recognized in the media. The program culminates with an awards celebration in the fall of each year.
