Alvin is pleased to be on the Board of Directors for The Education Foundation of Baltimore County Public Schools and feels the mission is tremendously important to the Maryland community. “I feel there is very little more important than education of everyone, particularly, our youngsters.

It may sound like “apple pie and motherhood,” but a good education will go a long way in structuring one’s life,” says Katz.
