The Daily Record has announced the honorees of its 2018 Maryland’s Top 100 Women awards and Kim Oldham (candidate for Howard County State’s Attorney) has made that list. I received this press announcement yesterday:
Office of the State’s Attorney for Howard County
For Immediate Release:
Howard County Deputy State’s Attorney Kim Y. Oldham has been selected one of Maryland’s Top 100 Women by The Daily Record in its 2018 listing. The Daily Record, a daily legal and business news publication, began Maryland’s Top 100 Women in 1996 to recognize outstanding achievements by women, demonstrated through professional accomplishments, community leadership and mentoring.
“Kim Oldham is a talented attorney whose reputation as a thorough, diligent, tough and prepared prosecutor has earned the respect of her colleagues and the legal community,” said Dario J. Broccolino, state’s attorney for Howard County. “We take great pride that one of our most dedicated prosecutors has been recognized for her professional accomplishments, her leadership to the citizens and communities of Howard County and her influence as a mentor,” he added.
Oldham is a veteran prosecutor in the Circuit Court Division where she has prosecuted felony cases that include homicides, sexual child abuse, kidnapping, armed robberies, narcotics and property crimes. In 2011, she was appointed deputy state’s attorney by Broccolino. In addition to assisting with the administration and management of the state’s attorney’s office, Oldham maintains a full case load, prosecuting the most violent of criminals. She joined the office in 1997 and worked in the District Court Division before being promoted to the Circuit Court Division in 1999. Prior to joining the office, she earned her bachelor’s degree from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University followed by her juris doctor degree from the Columbus School of Law at Catholic University.
Oldham was named Prosecutor of the Year in 2002 by the Howard County Chamber of Commerce for her outstanding contributions to the community. She has also received commendation certificates from the Howard County Police department. She is also a graduate of Leadership Howard County, an organization dedicated to preparing, connecting and inspiring leaders to work together to improve the community. Among her community activities, Oldham is a board member of HC DrugFree, founder and race director of the Maryland State’s Attorneys’ Association annual 7k Run to Remember which has raised nearly $20,000 to support the Maryland Network Against Domestic Violence, and is a past president of the James Macgill American Inn of Court. She resides in Ellicott City with her husband, Jack Mitchell and their two children.
“Maryland’s Top 100 Women create change and break barriers in their professional worlds but also make a difference at home and in their communities,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “We applaud our honorees for their passion, their commitment to excellence and for the work they do to bring communities together. The impact these women make across our state demonstrates why they are truly Maryland’s Top 100 Women. The Daily Record is honored to recognize them.”
This year, The Daily Record received nearly 425 nominations. A panel of business professionals and previous Maryland’s top 100 women honorees from throughout the state reviewed the final applications and selected this year’s honorees who will be recognized at the awards celebration at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore on Monday, April 23.
