Erin O'Keefe, '03, director of Loyola University Maryland's York Road Initiative, has been named to The Daily Record's 2013 VIP List.
The list recognizes Maryland leaders who demonstrate a commitment to inspiring change in their community through tremendous accomplishments achieved before or by age 40. TDR says its VIPs are "the ones to watch at law firms, businesses, hospitals, nonprofits, and universities."
At Loyola, O'Keefe provides leadership on the creation and implementation of a plan for the York Road Initiative. She works with a 20-plus-member University task force as well as with York Road community members, neighborhood associations, businesses, schools, and other organizations to coordinate resources and activities that strengthen the York Road area. O'Keefe holds a masters degree in public policy from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. She majored in political science as a Loyola undergraduate, was president of the Student Government Association, and was a member of the Green and Grey Society. She lives in Baltimore City and sits on the boards of the Citizens Planning and Housing Association, Greater Homewood Community Corporation, and Rebuilding Together Baltimore.
O'Keefe will be honored along with all 40 winners for 2013 at a reception on Wednesday, Aug. 21, at Gertrude's at the Baltimore Museum of Art.
