When Marian met (then) Vice President George H. W. Bush at the White House in 1982, he said, "Marian Greenblatt! Your name is practically a household word.” He had read about her work on the Montgomery County Board of Education and was very supportive of her efforts.

Our Mission

 

Recognize exceptional Master Teachers, Rising-Star Teachers, and Aspiring Teachers in Montgomery County, MD. Recognize outstanding students in Social Studies and Foreign Language Studies. Support the Education Community.

 

The Fund commemorates the efforts of Dr. Marian Greenblatt to improve education in Montgomery County. She was elected to the Montgomery County Board of Education from 1976 - 1984, and served as its President during 1978 - 1979. She worked to raise academic standards for students, eliminate frivolous courses, decrease class sizes, increase teacher budgets, and eliminate truancies.

 

The Fund was established on the passing of Dr. Greenblatt in 1988 and is managed by her family. Contributions to the Fund are tax-deductible, as the US Internal Revenue Service has designated it a 501c(3) organization.
