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.
