Kelley and Harlow sworn in to QA Board of Education
CENTREVILLE — Captain Beverly Kelley and Sharyn Harlow were sworn in to office as members of the Queen Anne’s County Board of Education at the regular meeting on Wednesday, Dec. 14.
Harlow, as the District 4 representative, and Kelley, District 3, were elected Nov. 8 and will serve for four years.
Interim Superintendent of Queen Anne’s County Public Schools Greg Pilewski read the Governor’s Citation. The two were charged, “to execute [their] set office, justly, honestly, diligently and faithfully, according to the law.” Their term began officially on Dec. 5, 2016, Pilewski said.
Harlow and Kelley were sworn into office by the Queen Anne’s County Clerk of Court, Scott MacGlashan.
As both Harlow and Kelley signed their names into the official ledger for Queen Anne’s County, MacGlashan told them they were now a part of Queen Anne’s County history, as these records date back to the 1870s, and now with your names will be documented in the county’s history for your children, grandchildren and greatgrandchildren.
Kelley has served on the Board of Education since 2012 and ran unopposed as the District 3 representative. This is Harlow’s first term as a member on the Board of Education.
Each board member serves on the Board of Education for four years. Every two years there is a new election of board members in a 2-3 member rotation. In the 2018 elections, District 1, District 2, and at large board positions will be up for election.
