Alicia Wilson Named AFRO Baltimore Newsmaker of the Year 2021

Alicia Wilson
Alicia Wilson, vice president for economic development at Johns Hopkins University and Johns Hopkins Health System, has been named the AFRO Baltimore Newsmaker of the Year 2021 for breaking barriers for Baltimore youth. For Wilson, mentoring is the thing. She meets with mentees, individually and in groups, helping them find a path to college. She was recently elected chair of the CollegeBound Foundation, the first African-American and the youngest board chair in the foundation’s 30-year history, according to the AFRO. Recalling the help she received in getting into college, she works hard to repay a debt she believes she owes. “Baltimore is a city that you can do so much for, if you continue to be positive about it,” she told the AFRO.
