This year marks the Charles County Board of Ed­u­ca­tion’s 100th an­niver­sary as a pub­lic body cor­po­rate. To help us cel­e­brate this mile­stone, we pro­vided a three-part speaker se­ries. “Ed­u­ca­tion: Then and Now” was held Sept. 2 at the Port To­bacco Court­house and One Room School­house, “Seg­re­ga­tion and Ed­u­ca­tion” was held Sept. 16-17 at the McConchie One-Room School­house at the Charles County Fair­grounds, and “When Disas­ters Strike, We’re Ready” took place Oct. 1 at the James E. Rich­mond Science Cen­ter at St. Charles High School. We hope that our com­mu­nity en­joyed this se­ries.

Pulling all of these pre­sen­ta­tions to­gether was quite an ef­fort — one that could not have been ac­com­plished with­out the part­ner­ships and as­sis­tance pro­vided by nu­mer­ous or­ga­ni­za­tions and in­di­vid­u­als from our com­mu­nity.

To that end, the Cen­ten­nial Cel­e­bra­tion Com­mit­tee would like to ex­tend our sin­cere ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the fol­low­ing or­ga­ni­za­tions and in­di­vid­u­als for their in­valu­able as­sis­tance in this en­deavor: Charles County Branch of the NAACP, Charles County Fair Inc., Charles County Pub­lic Schools Cen­tral Of­fice, Charles County Re­tired School Per­son­nel As­so­ci­a­tion, Col­lege of South­ern Mary­land’s South­ern Mary­land Stud­ies Cen­ter, the Mar yland In­de­pen­dent, McConchie School­house Com­mit­tee, Mau­rice J. McDonough High School, Mur­phy’s Store, James E. Rich­mond Science Cen­ter, St. Charles High School, So­ci­ety for the Restora­tion of Port To­bacco, Dale Cor­nette, Joyce Ede­len, Mar y Fen­ton, Mar­lene Jamieson, Anna Kephart, Rus­sell Lee, Mar­garet Mar­shall, Carolyn Rogers, Karen Rowledge, Dorothea Smith, Ge­orge Smith, Con­chita Walls, Harold Watts, Abi­gail Wear­mouth, Mar y Louise Webb and Tina Wil­son.

We have truly en­joyed work­ing with these or­ga­ni­za­tions and in­di­vid­u­als as we cel­e­brate our 100th an­niver­sar y, and we ap­pre­ci­ate the com­mu­nity’s sup­port of Charles County Pub­lic Schools. Here’s to the next 100! Jen­nifer Abell, Vic­to­ria T. Kelly, Bar­bara Palko, La Plata The writ­ers are mem­bers of the Charles County Board of Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­ten­nial Cel­e­bra­tion Com­mit­tee.
