González to be appointed to Cleveland’s public school board

CLEVELAND, June 6, 2006: Mayor Frank G. Jackson announced last week that Jessica González, 26, will be appointed to the Board of the Cleveland Municipal School District to fill an unexpired term.

“I am pleased to have Jessica González as my first appointment to the Board. She has been a strong advocate for education and has worked to increase the retention rate of Hispanic students in Cleveland Schools,” said Mayor Jackson.

The Cleveland Municipal School Board nominating panel submitted five names as finalists to the Mayor. “They were all strong candidates, and I am gratified that there is such an interest in serving on the Cleveland Municipal School Board,” said Mayor Jackson.

Mayor Jackson and Chief of Education Tracy Martin interviewed the finalists on Friday. González will be sworn in later this month. She will fulfill the term ending in June 2007 of Gladys Santiago, who resigned last month.

González is a graduate of Jane Addams Business Center and Bowling Green State University. She is currently Housing Program Coordinator for the Spanish American Committee and formerly worked as Assistant Director of Creating Possibilities at El Barrio. She has also worked with the Hispanic Teen Initiative of Metro Health Medical Center.
