In December 2019, Baltimore-based developer, investor and philanthropist, Scott Plank, had the privilege to deliver the commencement speech at the University of Maryland’s School of Agriculture, Planning, and Preservation’s winter commencement ceremony. Scott was humbled to receive the university’s Distinguished Alumni Award, which was presented by Dean Linebaugh of the University of Maryland’s Department of Agriculture, Planning, and Preservation.
“I was incredibly grateful to give the commencement speech to the graduating class of my alma mater and share the incredible importance of investing in your community, your environment and your passions, with the future leaders of tomorrow,” Scott said regarding the honor, “Thank you, Dean Linebaugh, as well as the staff and students at the University of Maryland, for having me!”
From studying urban planning and architecture as a student at The University of Maryland College Park, to opening his Baltimore-based real estate development and investment firm, War Horse Cities, Scott has UMD’s Department of Agriculture, Planning, and Preservation to thank for equipping him with the knowledge and skill to succeed in his industry and the inspiration to make long-lasting impacts on communities.
