School Board Unanimously Picks Woodbridge Resident to Fill Occoquan Seat

Former board member Grant Lattin's seat has been temporarily filled by Dr. Michael E. Wooten

Prince William County School board unanimously voted for Woodbridge resident Dr. Michael E. Wooten to fill the vacant Occoquan District seat until a special election can be held in November. 

Former board member resigned from the board to spend more time with his family. Wooten will serve on the school board on an interim basis, said PWCS, until a long-term replacement can be voted in by the district. 

Board Chairman-at-Large Milton C. Johns praised the "wonderful group of qualified and motivated candidates" from which Wooten was chosen, said a press release from the school system.

Wooten said joining the board is "a wonderful opportunity to serve the students of Prince William County."

Wooten is currently vice chair on the college board for Northern Virginia Community College serving Prince William County. His term is set to expire June 30, 2012. 

In a release about Wooten's new appointment, PWCS said Wooten has "multiple graduate degrees and recently earned his Ed.D in Higher Education Management from the University of Pennsylvania. He is a Professor of Contract Management at Defense Acquisition University, and has worked with Prince William County Public Schools through a long-running taekwondo program partnership."

I do not know Dr. Wooten personally, but I had a look at his Facebook page. This man is obviously dedicated to education and I wish him all the best in his tenure as Occoquan School Board Representative.
