|Info||Nick Mosby- is a business leader, youth advocate, and Baltimore’s Native Son. Nick was born and raised in North East Baltimore by his mother, the late Eunice Orange. Growing up, his mother was his guiding light and she always stressed education as a top priority. Because of his mother’s wisdom and insight, Nick gained an appreciation for education and all of the opportunities it afforded. Very early on, Nick’s mother, who was a single-parent, took advantage of school enrichment programs such as: Head Start; TWIGS; MESA; and Upward Bound; all which helped strengthen and broaden Nick’s academic and cultural experiences. After graduating from Baltimore Polytechnic Institute in 1997, Nick attended and graduated from Tuskegee University, making him the first in his family to graduate from college. Nick holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Tuskegee University, where he was also selected for Eta Kappa Nu, International Electrical Engineering Honor Society. |
Following graduation from Tuskegee University, Nick's lasting love, foresight, and passion for Baltimore City brought him back home and in 2004 Nick invested in Reservoir Hill by purchasing a boarded up, dilapidated house that was abandoned for almost 20 years through the S.C.O.P.E program. Recognizing his ability to not only make a difference for the future of his family but for the future of Baltimore City, Nick's community leadership and activism began as he embarked as a business leader, youth advocate and a dedicated public servant.
Having benefitted from remarkable extra-curricular programs as a youth, Nick recognizes his personal responsibility to give back to the youth. As such, Nick has been an instructor and mentor with the Omega Academy where he served as role model to adolescent boys in West Baltimore, a College Tour coordinator and mentor with the Winning Teams Mentoring Program at Coppin State University, a seminar facilitator with Inroads, Inc., as well as a volunteer with the Upward Bound program.
On the business front, Nick is currently a Video Network Engineering Manager with Verizon Communications Inc. and has managed projects for the company with budgets of over $30 million as well as managing upwards of 22 employees. Nick has been with Verizon for over 14 years. In addition to his wealth of business experience and success, Nick also has an extensive record of public service. He is the immediate past President of the Bolton Park Neighbors, Inc. in Reservoir Hill and current board member of Midtown Community Benefits District (MCBD), Empowering Minds of Maryland Youth (EMMY), and the Elijah Cummings Youth Program (ECYP). In 2008, Nick was honorably appointed to the Maryland Democratic State Central Committee for the 40th District and served as a board member of Community Building in Partnerships Incorporated in Sandtown-Winchester.
Raised with strong Christian values, Nick is a lifelong member of St. Matthew Catholic Church, an active member of Reservoir Hill community associations, and Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Incorporated. Nick currently resides in Reservoir Hill and is happily married to Assistant State’s Attorney for Baltimore City, Marilyn Mosby. Together, they are the proud parents of two young daughters.
