New arrival on Carroll school board
The Carroll County Board of Ed is going to have a new face join its ranks come Friday, when Virginia Harrison is sworn in. Harrison, chairwoman of the county's Human Relations Commission, was appointed by the governor last week to fill the seat recently left vacant by Jeff Morse.
Harrison steps onto the board as its sole member of color – a presence the panel has not had for some time.
What difference, if any, do you think it makes to have a person of color – or some other type of diversity – on a school board? Does it matter?
