Molock running for board of education
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.
