The Daily Record Honors Odyssey's Head of School as One of Maryland's Top 100 Women

The Daily Record has named Marty Sweeney, Head of School at The Odyssey School to its 2024 listing of Maryland’s Top 100 Women. 

In its 29th year, Maryland’s Top 100 Women was founded to recognize outstanding achievements by women demonstrated through professional accomplishments, community leadership and mentoring.

"What an incredible honor it is to be recognized among such an amazing, accomplished group of women making a lasting impact across the state," said Marty Sweeney, Odyssey's Head of School. "As we prepare to celebrate our 30th anniversary, I am filled with immense gratitude to be part of the visionary team that propelled The Odyssey School forward, and to be at the helm of a school leading the charge on dyslexia education in Maryland."

Nominees were asked to complete an application outlining their educational and career history, professional and community involvement, corporate and nonprofit board memberships, and mentoring experience. They were encouraged to submit letters of recommendation from those who are familiar with their accomplishments professionally, in the community and through mentoring.

A panel of business and legal professionals, previous Maryland’s Top 100 Women honorees from throughout the state, and a representative of The Daily Record reviewed the final applications and selected this year’s honorees.

“The 2024 Maryland’s Top 100 Women are exemplary leaders from a variety of professions across the state. They make significant contributions to their organizations and communities and are committed to mentoring to elevate future women leaders,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, managing director of BridgeTower Media/The Daily Record. “We are so pleased to honor this year’s Circle of Excellence winners for their incredible achievements and for their support and encouragement of other women. Congratulations to all the 2024 Maryland’s Top 100 Women.”

Maryland's Top 100 Women will be honored at a reception and awards celebration on May 6 at The Lyric Baltimore, 140 W. Mount Royal Avenue in Baltimore. Winners will be profiled in a special magazine that will be inserted into the May 7 issue of The Daily Record and will be available online at
