Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker III (D) is accepting applications for a seat on the Board of Education — again to help us grow even stronger!
This is the third time this year that Baker has taken applications to fill a seat on the school board.
Baker’s office will accept applications until Sept. 19 to fill the seat vacated by Donna Hathaway-Beck (District 9).
Hathaway-Beck announced recently that she was resigning after serving nearly seven years on the board. She said she wanted to spend more time with her family. Today September 6, 2013 is her last day as a Prince George’s County Board Member of Education and we wish her well.
In July, Carletta Fellows (District 7) resigned from her seat. And earlier this year, Baker accepted applications from across the county after he was given authority to appoint three new members to the reconfigured board. Ms. Lyn J. Mundey has since been chosen to replace Ms. Fellows.
Applicants interested in the latest opening must live in District 9. Applications are available on the county’s Web site or at the County Administration Building.
Baker plans to name a replacement by the end of the month, according to Mr. Christian Rhodes, the county executive’s education adviser.
