Ty Taborn, longtime director of educational programs at Career Communications Group’s Foundation for Educational Development, Inc., (FEDI) was recently sworn in to practice as a student attorney at the University of Baltimore School of Law.
“Great morning at the University of Baltimore Law School as a parent and an MSU Regent. With Robert Bell, 23rd Chief Judge, Maryland Court of Appeals, and Morgan State graduate, at our son’s swearing in as a student lawyer. He is combining his law degree with his master’s degree,” wrote Tyrone Taborn, publisher, and CEO of Career Communications Group (CCG) on his Facebook wall.
Ty joined CCG shortly after graduating with a master’s degree in minority and urban education from the University of Maryland.
After several successful FEDI campaigns that showcased science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) career opportunities, Ty took a sabbatical to do a Juris Doctor (JD) Degree. He will now practice as a student attorney under the supervision of experienced attorneys.
“Dear Ty, Congrats I am so proud of you… As your other Grandmother, I love you, being in the company of your mom and Judge Bell two of my favorite people is so special. Tyrone, I know you are proud of this young man. congrats again,” wrote Senator Shirley Nathan-Pulliam (D-Baltimore County).
During the spring of 2015, Ty served as a Legislative Aide at the Maryland State Senate and on the 2014 Nathan-Pulliam re-election campaign.
Craig Thompson, a Venable LLP partner who recently led the 100-year old law firm’s inclusion and diversity initiatives, called Ty’s achievements “Awesome” in a string of congratulatory messages, including Kweisi Mfume, former president/CEO of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).
There were also good wishes from two Black Engineers of the Year, including Freeman Hrabowski, president of The University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and retired chief executive officer of Noblis Lydia W. Thomas.
“There is so little good news these days,” said the 2003 Black Engineer of the Year Award (BEYA) winner. “I can’t tell you how delighted I am. Please give Ty my best wishes for a great semester and congratulations on the selection. Bill and I are very proud of him.”
And so say all of us in the extended CCG-BEYA family!
