BALTIMORE, MD–Tanzina Iman, a sophomore at Springbrook High School, was one of the three students statewide to receive a “Woman of Tomorrow” award during a ceremony May 16 in Annapolis hosted by the Maryland Comission for Women.

“The purpose of the program is to honor young women who have made significant and remarkable contributions to their communities,” says Dory Stacks, Executive Director for the Maryland Commission for Women.

Raised in Bangladesh until the 4th grade, Tanzina quickly adapted to American life. Currently she is enrolled at Springbrook High School and is involved in a multitude of extra-curricular and volunteer activities. Recently she earned the Superintendent Student Service Learning Award for earning over 440 hours of community service.

She also represents Springbrook High School at the Montgomery Country Region of Maryland Association of Student Council Assembly and is a participant of the 7th Annual UMD-NSF Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) and the American Institution of Physics Student Conference under Carolyn Garvey.

“On behalf of Governor Martin O’Malley, I would like to congratulate this fine young woman. The future of all our children depends upon the fortitude of students like these,” states Brenda Donald, Department of Human Resources Secretary.
