  • A little over two years ago, Tierra A. Dorsey found herself seated beside then president of Central Scholarship, Jan Wagner, while attending a scholarship kickoff event. Dorsey, an experienced higher education fund raiser and Goucher College’s executive director of development at the time, was bemused that she’d never heard of Central Scholarship, an Owings Mills-based nonprofit that provides scholarships and interest-free loans to help fund the financial gap between trade school, undergraduate, and graduate education. Eager to know more, she arranged to meet with Wagner and others affiliated with the organization. 
  • Little did she know that her quest for information would lead to a new job and an historical achievement, becoming the first African-American president of Central Scholarship in the organization’s 97-year history.
