Alsobrooks Appoints Chair, Vice Chair to Prince George’s School Board

Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks has appointed a retired D.C. Public Schools administrator to replace Alvin Thornton as chair of the county’s board of education.

Juanita Miller, a former state delegate in the Maryland General Assembly, has also provided leadership for the Prince George’s County Affairs Committee, the Women’s Caucus Legislative Committee and the Black Caucus’ Business Roundtable Conference, according to a statement from Alsobrooks’ office.

“It is truly a distinct honor that the county executive has requested me to serve in this position,” Miller said in the statement. “I thank her for the confidence she has in my leadership skills and community service. … I’d also like to acknowledge and thank Dr. Thornton who has done a great job in leading the Board during his most recent tenure.”

Prior to her retirement from DCPS, Miller served as a liaison for the school system interfacing with various government and private agencies, the statement said.

Alsobrooks also appointed board member Sonya Williams as its vice chair. Williams, first appointed to the board in 2014 by then-County Executive Rushern Baker, was sworn in for her second elected term representing District 9 in December 2018.
