Anne Arundel School Board Elects New Leadership

The Anne Arundel County Board of Education on Wednesday elected Vice President Julie Hummer as president for the 2017-18 school year.

According to The Capital Gazette,

“I think she’s the most qualified person we have on the board right now, or certainly the most available,” said Hummer’s predecessor Stacy Korbelak, who served as president for three years. “We’re really grateful that she can do that for us.”

Board member Terry Gilleland, who represents District 32, was elected vice president. Hummer said she looks forward to working with him.

“He’s a dedicated board member, he’s always prepared and we work well together,” she said.

Hummer and Gilleland aren’t the only people assuming new roles on the board, as Lusia Cole, a rising senior at Chesapeake Science Point Public Charter School and the 44th student member of the board, also broke new ground by attending her first meeting as a full voting rights board member Wednesday.
