In 1992, The Council of Elders of the Black Community of Howard County (TCOE) was established by Gloria Washington Wallace to serve as advisors to The Black Student Achievement Program (BSAP) in the Howard County Public School System (HCPSS). Our initial purpose was to provide a historical perspective on the education of Black youth in the County, provide substantial role models of moral standing and spiritual leadership for our children, and serve as regal representatives for BSAP ceremonies and programs, such as the Evening of Excellence celebration for Black graduates.

In 1997, TCOE became an independent entity — responsible first to the Black community of Howard County, based on a change that we wanted to make in the criteria for acknowledging Black students.
