Brewington is my mother’s maiden name. My grandparents, Ethel and Daniel Brewington, raised their children to be educational scholars and forward thinkers. Growing up as African Americans in a time when everyone did not have access to basic rights, receiving their education was very integral to them. They both graduated from Coppin State University with their Bachelor of Arts in Education. They also graduated with Master of Arts degrees from the University of Maryland College Park when they were both elementary school teachers who advanced to become Principals in the Baltimore City Public School System. They believed a formal education was integral to succeeding in life. They are also responsible for instilling these intrinsic values within my entire family— Honesty, Integrity, Commitment, Excellence, and Family. Those core values and the importance of hard work have guided me as a child and throughout my life.
Entrepreneurship was also strongly fostered by my family, as many of my immediate family members, on both sides, are entrepreneurs and own their own businesses. Among my generation alone, seventy percent of my cousins ages 50 and under, own and operate our own businesses. Since I was young, my goal has always been to own and operate a construction industry firm. Watching the success of my family members, I realized early on how important it is for young entrepreneurs to have mentors and role models who will aid one’s growth and development.
Naming this company, the Brewington Management Company is a tribute to my late Grandparents and acknowledgment of all the life lessons, morals, and values they’ve instilled in not only our family but in the people that are lucky enough to cross their path. They were the life force of our family.
