Brianna Bowling, president of Zekiah Technologies, trusts her employees, which might be why they managed to pull one over on her. She had no idea that they had nominated her to be the Leading Edge CEO of the Year, an honor she ended up winning from the Corporate Center at the College of Southern Maryland.

"I was very honored for a couple reasons. It shows a lot of respect from the people who work for me, which is very important to me, so it's a nice honor in itself. The second part is there's an awful lot of strong leaders in the tri-county region, so to be selected from among them is an honor as well," Bowling said.
