County Executive Baker Announces Appointment of Carolyn M. Boston as Vice Chair of the Prince George’s County Board of Education

Upper Marlboro, MD – Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker,  III announced the appointment of Carolyn M. Boston as Vice Chair of the Prince  George’s County Board of Education, a position she currently holds.  Under  recently enacted Maryland law, HB-1107, the County Executive is charged with  nominating the Chair and Vice Chair of the Board of Education.  The Vice  Chair must be selected from one of the elected members of the Board if the Chair  is one of the appointed members.  County Executive Baker previously  appointed Dr. Segun Eubanks to serve as the new Board Chair.  On June 28,  County Executive Baker announced his selection of Dr. Kevin Maxwell as Prince  George’s County Public Schools’ Chief Executive Officer.

“I am pleased that Carolyn Boston will remain as Vice Chair  of the Prince George’s County Board of Education.  Her experience and  history with the Board will serve as a bridge during this  transition in school governance,” said Prince George’s County Executive  Rushern L. Baker, III. “Throughout her tenure on the Board of Education Ms.  Boston has earned the respect of her colleagues and has been an advocate for  her constituents, students, parents, and teachers.”

In June, County Executive Baker appointed three new members  to the Board of Education.  Former Provost and Vice President of the  University of the District of Columbia (UDC), Dr. Beverly Anderson of Fort  Washington, and Dr. Daniel Kaufman of Bowie,  Executive Vice President and head of Widmeyer Communications’ PreK-12 education  practice in Washington, D.C. and New York City.  Mr. Curtis  Valentine of Fort  Washington, a  consultant with the Imagine Foundation, was appointed by the Prince George’s  County Council.

In Selecting Ms. Boston, Reform Sasscer Movement believes County Executive Baker was sending a message of bridging the gap and the fight against discrimination and harassment throughout the Prince George’s County School system. We look forward to working with her and the entire Board in transforming the future of our kids with great affection in PG County.  May God Bless the United States.

Education is important because, first of all, people need to know that discrimination still exists. It is still real in the workplace, and we should not take that for granted. ~ Alexis Herman
