Bowie City Council has endorsed Verjeana Jacobs '96 for another term as Prince George's County Board of Education Chairwoman. The letter reads:
"During Ms. Jacobs’ tenure, our school system has seen marked improvement in test scores, removal of schools from the state's "watch list" of failing schools and the expansion of programs that parents and teachers alike have been seeking for years, including:
The opening of the new Northview Elementary School
A full TAG Center at Heather Hills Elementary School
The recent recognition of Whitehall Elementary School as a National Blue Ribbon School; and
Instrumental in helping in getting the playground improvements at Pointer Ridge Elementary School.
In addition, she has been a consistent supporter of a new high school in Bowie. We have each worked with Ms. Jacobs over the past several years and know she possess’ all of the life skills, both personal and professional, and experience that we should demand of our school board representatives. Our board chair also serves as a role model for our children and County by showing that hard work and doing the right things in life has its rewards."
