The Washington Post endorsed Prince George's County Board of Education Chairwoman Verjeana Jacobs, '96, for another term as chairwoman. The Washington Post says,

"Verjeana M. Jacobs, a standout board member since her first term began in 2006 and now in her second term as chairman, deserves reelection to the board over her four challengers in District 5, which stretches from Bowie to Mitchellville and Upper Marlboro.

Smart and hardworking, Ms. Jacobs has a deep knowledge of the system and, as a one-time hearing officer for the school system, has good insights into student needs."

Verjeana Jacobs works full time managing a staff of nearly a dozen people as division chief of the county Department of Corrections Office of Professional Responsibility and Legal Affairs. She won one of four at-large seats on the Prince George's school board in 2006 for a four-year term, serving as vice-chairwoman for a year before being elected chairwoman in 2007.
