BAAM Booming: The Future Plans of BAAM with Derick Daly


It’s hard to tell what was in the minds of Derick Daly and his wife, Dina, when they conceived the idea of Talbot County’s youth education program, Building African-American Minds, otherwise known as BAAM, but it is unlikely that the original concept would have included the creation of a BAAM campus that would consist of a “state of the art”academic building as well as athletic center.

But given BAAM’s unique track record since it launched in 2004, which has positively impacted hundreds of young boys in and around Easton, it now looks in hindsight as almost inevitable that this highly respected project would evolve into a remarkably sophisticated and financially stable institution worthy of these kinds of capital investment.

The Spy sat down withDerick last week to review the current status of BAAM’s strategic plan, the groundbreaking the athletic center, and the vision and design of the new academic center.
