The Board of Education of Anne Arundel County today elected Stacy Korbelak to a third consecutive term as president and elected Julie Hummer as vice president for the 2016-2017 school year.
Korbelak was appointed to the Board in July 2012. A resident of Piney Orchard, she was an active volunteer in the schools in which her four children attended. She served as vice president of PTA at Piney Orchard Elementary School and president of PTA at Arundel Middle School, and was a member of the Integrated Community Stakeholders Team at Arundel High School.
Korbelak, who represents District 21 on the Board, is an Associate Professor of English composition and literature at Howard Community College (HCC) in Columbia, and coordinator of the college’s Global Distinction program. Prior to joining HCC, she spent more than 15 years in human resources and employee/labor relations with both the federal government and private sector.
Hummer is an at-large member of the Board who was appointed in 2015. She has five children, all of whom attend Anne Arundel County Public Schools, and over the last year has served as a member of the Commission to Review Maryland’s Use of Assessments and Testing in Public Schools appointed by Gov. Larry Hogan.
Hummer previously taught students with learning disabilities and emotional disturbances in the Frederick County (Va.) and Fairfax County (Va.) school systems. Prior to becoming an educator, she was a branch manager and licensed investment counselor with First Union Bank.
Today’s meeting was the first for new Board Member Eric Grannon, who represents District 33 on the Board, and new student member Carolyn Williams. Williams, a rising senior at Glen Burnie High School, is the 43rd student member of the Board, and the only student on a local board in the nation with full voting rights.
