INTRODUCING ARTAZ COTTON AND FIDEL PEREZ,
2017-18 CITY COUNCIL PAGES!
Congratulations to our 2017-2018 City Council Pages, Artaz Cotton, 12th grader at Green Street Academy, and Fidel Perez, 11th grader from Mergenthaler Vocational Technical High School.
Artaz can best be described as heart-warming and inspiring. As a young man growing up in West Baltimore, he has had to deal with a life filled with tragedy and trauma. Artaz is the only person in his immediate family to make it to the 12th grade and is on track to graduate high school and attend college. His ambition outweighs the obstacles and challenges which is reflected in his civically engaged life. His involvement in a youth mentoring program, community clean ups, Outward Bound program, and Rosemont Recreational Center is noteworthy.
Fidel can be best described as a driven young man, committed to achieving excellence through his education and real life experiences. Fidel was first introduced to our program through participation in the MSBA Mock Trial Competition followed by acceptance into the 2017 Law Links Summer Internship Program. Fidel says it best- “I live by 3 R’s- Responsibility, Respect and Readiness.” The 3 R’s will continue to inspire him to remain focused and committed toward his goal of working in the legal profession.
We would like to wish Paul Plymouth, Legislative Aid for the Baltimore City Council, a fond farewell. Paul will be transferring his skills and professionalism to the private sector. He was an amazing supervisor, leader, mentor and supporter of the Baltimore City Council Page program. He went above and beyond the call of duty, always putting the Pages' best interests first. He continues to remain in contact with all Pages whom he has supervised, and we are sure he will continue to do so in his new venture.
