To the Editor:
We, as former School Board chairs, enthusiastically encourage Alexandria voters in District B to re-elect Marc Williams to the Alexandria School Board. Marc has served on the board for the past four years and, with a minimum of six new members on the board, it is important to maintain the experience and continuity that Marc brings in order to continue the progress that has been made in raising student achievement throughout ACPS. Marc is a consensus builder, proven leader and dedicated School Board member who has demonstrated his commitment to programs and curriculum that challenge and meet the needs of all our students.
Marc and his family have lived in Alexandria for over 20 years. His oldest son recently graduated from T. C. Williams High School, his younger son is currently at T.C. Williams and his daughter attends George Washington Middle School. More information about Marc can be found on his website www.marcwilliamsforschoolboard.com.
Melvin Miller served on the School Board for seven years and as chair from 1983-85 at a challenging time to further the excellence of public education in Alexandria. Carlyle C. (“Connie”) Ring was on the School Board during the exciting changes portrayed in the movie “Remember the Titans” and served as chair from 1976-78.
We know the qualities that make a good School Board member and our choice is Marc Williams.
A. Melvin Miller
Carlyle C. (Connie) Ring
