In Memoriam

Col. Kim Ward, LBC ’92, died of cancer on Aug. 7. She was a career Baltimore County Police officer who rose through the ranks to become the highest-ranking female officer in department history until 2019 when County Executive Johnny Olszewski, Jr., LBC ’10, appointed Chief Melissa Hyatt. Kim was a visionary whose heart was made of gold. She held herself and those around her to the highest standards while building people up and inspiring them to do their best,” said Amanda Zinn.

Kim served on LBC’s Alumni Board and stayed engaged with LBC for many years after her graduation from the program. She continued to nominate colleagues and business associates to LBC and was always available to assist in any way she could.

While it would be nearly impossible to list all of her accomplishments and accolades, you can get a sense of the hundreds of lives she touched and her profound impact on them through this moving video of her funeral service produced by the Baltimore County Police Department.

She will be sorely missed by so many, including her LBC family.
