CAM­BRIDGE — Von­cia Molock is the third can­di­date in the District 5 Dorch­ester County Board of Ed­u­ca­tion race.

Molock was raised in Dorch­ester County, and is a grad­u­ate of North Dorch­ester High School. She earned her bach­e­lor’s de­gree in elec­tron­ics engi­neer­ing and tech­nol­ogy from DeVry In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy and her master’s de­gree in man­age­ment from Pur­due Univer­sity.

Molock cur­rently works as an in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy sup­port ser­vices man­ager. Her four chil­dren are stu­dents of the Dorch­ester County Pub­lic Schools sys­tem.

Vol­un­teer work is a large part of Molock’s life. She has vol­un­teered as a speaker for many pro­grams, in­clud­ing those held at Dorch­ester County schools. She also has served as a men­tor for in­terns, an oys­ter re­cov­ery project vol­un­teer, and is ac­tive in her church.

“I am a proud prod­uct of DCPS and I know the value of ed­u­ca­tion and life­long learn­ing,” Molock said. “I also know that I didn’t suc­ceed on my own. There were so many won­der­ful peo­ple in Dorch­ester County who gave me a strong foun­da­tion in terms of en­cour­age­ment, sup­port, schol­ar­ships, time and knowl­edge. I am run­ning to be­come a mem­ber of the Dorch­ester County Board of Ed­u­ca­tion to sup­port ev­ery child in this county in be­com­ing col­lege and ca­reer ready.”

Molock said she plans to build part­ner­ships with lo­cal em­ploy­ers to cre­ate bet­ter op­por­tu­ni­ties for stu­dents to be­come col­lege and ca­reer ready; pro­vide re­sources for class­room teach­ers; in­crease parental in­volve­ment in class­room ed­u­ca­tion; and uti­lize tech­nol­ogy ef­fec­tively.

Early vot­ing for the 2016 pri­mary elec­tion will run through 8 p.m. on Thurs­day, April 21. Elec­tion day is April 26.
