UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) — Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker has appointed a new Board of Education chairman.

Baker’s office says Dr. Segun Eubanks will be sworn in Saturday as board chairman under a new state law that takes effect Saturday. It allows the county executive to choose the county school board chair.

Eubanks is director of teacher quality for the National Education Association and is a parent of two Prince George’s students. Eubanks also served as chairman of Baker’s commission on education for the past year. He replaces board chair Verjeana Jacobs.

In a statement, Baker thanked Jacobs for leading the board through difficult times. He says Eubanks brings an expertise in teacher quality and a vested interest in the schools, as a parent.

Four appointees will join nine elected school board members.
