A Baltimore native born in the Ednor Gardens- Lakeside neighborhood, Marques Dent embodies the principle – a position doesn’t make a person – a person makes a position. He remains devoted to service and education, and believes firmly that information is the key to success.
At a very early age Marques began to show his compassion and commitment for service to others, as well as the need to help within his community. His passion for people and progress began at the age of 11. Marques decided that he wanted to operate his very own Snowball stand in his neighborhood. He wanted to make sure that his community was on the right track to a healthy lifestyle, so he only used fresh fruit ingredients whenever making a Snowball for a customer. His passion for volunteerism and service kept Marques busy throughout his childhood and teenage years; he helped with voter registration and constituent concerns during campaign years between 1992 – 1996. He volunteered as an Alter Server at St. Matthew’s church, and taught youth Confirmation classes. While attending St. Paul’s School for Boys, Marques continued to excel both athletically and academically. Upon completion of high school, Marques was accepted to Tennessee State University.
You can count on the dedication of this community. There is always room for improvement, and I know I can support our district in the areas we are struggling. I will improve the quality or our children's education while creating an atmosphere where teachers don't feel limited.
Help me win this election so I can get to work! Handing out flyers, phone banks, and donations are all great ways to help, but I also want to hear from you! Together, I believe we can find the solutions so our district can improve. Please, reach out and get involved!
