Nov 06, 2019 | by Hope H. Davis | 443.840.5053 (office) | 410.971.5560 (cell)Baltimore County, Md. – Community College of Baltimore County Foundation recently presented board member Al Lloyd with its “Outstanding Benefactor Award.” Normally presented to businesses, this award honors those who have contributed $30,000 or more over a five-year period. Lloyd is the first individual to be honored with this award.
A Dundalk, Md. resident, Lloyd graduated from CCBC Dundalk (then-Dundalk Community College) in 1978. Over the years, he has remained connected to the college and has a passion for giving back to students. Joining the Dundalk Community College Foundation in 1991, Lloyd was one of the Foundation’s original members and established one of its oldest and largest endowments to date. When the campus-based foundation boards merged in 2006, Lloyd continued to serve creating a legacy of fundraising prowess which has benefited hundreds of CCBC students over the years via scholarships.
Lloyd runs two major fundraisers annually to support CCBC scholarships and programs. He manages the annual Bull Roast and Shrimp Feast, which is in its 42nd year, and coordinates the annual Lottery Calendar currently on sale. His fundraising efforts alone have amassed over $336,000 for CCBC, thanks to his fundraising activities and personal giving.
“Al Lloyd is part of the CCBC family,” said Vice President of Institutional Advancement Ken Westary. “You can often find him walking through the bookstore purchasing books for unsuspecting students or buying a meal in the cafeteria for students in need. His generosity is bountiful and hundreds of CCBC students have benefited from the endowments he has established and the scholarships that have been created due to his fundraising efforts.”
