Championing Underserved Youth

Verjeana Jacobs

Verjeana M. Jacobs

Hello and welcome! I am Verjeana Jacobs, school board member in Prince George’s County, Maryland. I am honored to serve as a member of the CUBE Steering Committee and grateful for the opportunity to serve as the chair of CUBE.

Each of us serve our communities on our respective school boards because we understand that a quality education is critical to a child’s ability to reach their full potential. Urban and urban-like districts experience additional challenges in educating children and achieving that mission—that is why our underrepresented and underserved youth need us to be strong champions.

Much work is before us, and it is hard work. Yet with a laser-focused commitment to closing achievement gaps, raising high school graduation rates, and providing effective interventions for struggling students, we can make a difference in the lives of our nation’s children.

I look forward to this opportunity and ask you to join me in the fight for equity and access for all students.

Verjeana M. Jacobs, Esq. ( is a member of Maryland’s Prince George’s County School Board and the CUBE steering committee chair.
