On #InternationalWomensDay, we honored Sally Michel, a pre-eminent cultural and educational activist who made a significant impact in Baltimore.  As the founder of the Parks & People, Sally developed a vision that seamlessly meshed environmental and educational initiatives, including the SuperKids Camp, a free six-week academic summer camp for all Baltimore City elementary school students approaching its 27-year anniversary! 

She supported countless organizations dedicated to enhancing the quality of life in Baltimore. We remember Sally Michel as an irreplaceable part of the Baltimore community and a tireless advocate for all of Baltimore’s children and parks.

Happy International Women’s Day to all the incredible women across the world who fight tirelessly to improve our world!
