Education Foundation Executive Director Deborah Phelps honored for supporting Baltimore schools

TOWSON, MD—The Education Foundation of Baltimore County Public Schools’ executive director, Deborah Phelps, has been named to The Daily Record’s Circle of Excellence for a third time.

The honor is an annual recognition of Phelps’s work in building partnerships, raising funds, and providing grants and resources to Baltimore County Public Schools and its schools. She has served in her role for nearly a dozen years, overseeing the expansion of the foundation’s capacity to support educators, schools, and students.

Phelps began with BCPS in 1996, holding positions such as principal of Windsor Mill Middle School, assistant to the executive director of schools in the southwest area, and coordinator and administrative facilitator of the Health, Finance, and Law Magnet program at Loch Raven Technical Academy. She is also the author of the book “A Mother for All Seasons,” a popular motivational speaker, and mentor.

The Daily Record’s Circle of Excellence honors outstanding women from Maryland across a variety of professional, community, and leadership backgrounds. The 29th annual awards ceremony, which will take place on May 6, also features a reception and celebration of the honorees’ achievements.

“The 2024 Maryland’s Top 100 Women are exemplary leaders from a variety of professions across the state,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, managing director of BridgeTower Media/The Daily Record. “They make significant contributions to their organizations and communities and are committed to mentoring to elevate future women leaders.”
