Malik Evans has a long record of community involvement and leadership in the Rochester area. His service to the Rochester community began when he was just a teen growing up in Rochester and attending Wilson Magnet High School. Malik initiated the City-County Youth Council to help get young people in Monroe County involved in community service. His extensive community involvement led to speaking engagements throughout the country on the role youth can play in community transformation, culminating with a presentation at the White House in 1999.
Malik Evans is a leader in business, serving as a Vice President with M&T Bank Corporation. In 2003, he decided to apply his leadership skills to public service by running for election to the Rochester Board of Education. Upon winning the city-wide election, Malik became the youngest person ever elected to the Board. As a member of the governing board of one of the largest urban school districts in the State, Malik’s motto is simple: “We can find solutions to our most pressing challenges by focusing on finding common ground”. He served as Board President from 2008 through 2013, and has worked tirelessly to ensure that students in Rochester have access to the same opportunities that he had.
Malik is involved in many community activities and boards, including the Board of Directors for Catholic Family Center and for the Rochester Area Community Foundation (RACF). His extensive leadership experience includes serving on the Monroe County Fair and Recreation Association Board of Directors; the University of Rochester Trustee Alumni Council; Teen Court Advisory Board; the Catholic Family Center Homeless and Housing Panel; Prevention Partners Board of Directors; Center For Youth As Resources National Board of Directors.
Malik's latest challenge is running after his young son, who serves as a daily reminder that we must create a brighter future for the coming generation.
