Barrett Wragg, Vice President of T. Rowe Price, is responsible for forging new relationships between the company and financial advisors across the Mid-Atlantic. As an experienced financial services professional, Barrett Wragg is a member of the Speakers’ Bureau for the Maryland Business Roundtable.

The Maryland Business Roundtable consists of leaders across various industries who aim to inspire and motivate students to pursue challenging professional careers. For instance, students at Pikesville High School recently benefited from a statewide effort to inject more talent into the state’s science and technology labor force through an initiative known as the STEM Specialists in the Classroom Program.

The program, which was launched by the Roundtable, involves, speakers coming into classrooms to demonstrate to students the real-world applications of science, technology, engineering, and math. These representatives come from governmental and academic institutions such as the Food and Drug Administration, the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, and the University of Maryland School of Medicine. The Roundtable created the program with the intention of providing students with the education they need to pursue STEM-related employment.
