The Daily Record named Marylou Yam, President of Notre Dame of Maryland University (NDMU) to its 2017 listing of Maryland’s Top 100 Women.
“I am humbled and honored to join this esteemed list of Maryland’s Top 100 Women,” said President Yam. “It includes wonderful alumnae from NDMU, as well as board members, former board members, and friends of our University. My deepest appreciation to those who affirmed my inclusion.”
The Daily Record began Maryland’s Top 100 Women to recognize outstanding achievements by women demonstrated through professional accomplishments, community leadership, and mentoring.
The 435 nominees went through the first round of judging by Maryland's Top 100 Women's Circle of Excellence honorees who selected 150 applicants to compete in the final round. A panel of business professionals and past winners reviewed the final applications and selected this year’s honorees.
Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record, said nominees are successful in their careers, but they must also be more than that. "She must be an exemplary citizen, committed to her community, creating change and growing the next generation of leaders through active mentoring."
