Marasco, a Senior Vice President at Howard Bank, was appointed to a six-year term on the community college’s board by Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan.
“Being named a trustee of Howard Community College is a huge honor,” said Marasco, an HCC graduate. “Since I graduated the growth of the college has been incredible, the quality of the education has been compared to Ivy League schools, and its facilities rival any four-year institution.”
The seven-member board assists in the overall direction of the college, including the budgeting process, and oversees HCC President Kathleen Hetherington. It also ensures the college is meeting a number of key performance measures.
“Chris is a huge advocate of Howard Community College and it is exciting to see his appointment to the Board of Trustees of such a dynamic institution,” said Mary Ann Scully, President and CEO of Howard Bank. “His leadership, insight, and knowledge of the college will result in an immediate and positive impact.”
Marasco received an Associates Degree in Business Administration from HCC in 1992, and supported the college’s foundation by becoming a member of the Grand Prix Advisory Board in 2005, which helped to provide scholarship support for HCC students. In 2008, he was elected to the HCC Educational Foundation Board of Directors, and served as both vice chair and chair of the foundation during his term. In August 2015, he received the HCC Trustee Award for his significant service to the college.
Marasco received a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance from the University of Baltimore in 2003. He plays an active role in the community by serving on the Board of The Community Foundation of Howard County, and has served on the Boards of The Maryland Science Center, The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults and The Baltimore Washington Chamber of Commerce.
