Henry Armwood of Ritchie and Lykisha Perkins of Capitol Heights are running to represent the school board District 7, which includes schools in Capitol Heights, Morningside, Temple Hills and the northwestern section of Upper Marlboro. Armwood, 60, who is retired, said he believes he has made a name for himself in the school community and sought partnerships to enhance students education. Armwood served as a PTA president at Springdale Charles H. Flowers High School from 2004 to 2006 and as a parent liaison from 2006 to 2009. Armwood cited an example of his ability to form local partnerships when he reached out to technology company Lockheed Martin in 2008 to partner with Flowers Science and Technology program to mentor students and offer internships after learning of a similar program at Oxon Hill Potomac High School. know most of the legislators, and I will collaborate and work with people to solve problems, Armwood said. not interested in any other office other than the school system. I will be a full time school board member. said if he is elected he wants an audit of the school system to identify any duplicate positions or waste, not as a cost cutting measure but to allocate people and resources where they are needed, and spend more time finding children who slip through the cracks and miss classes but are not necessarily troublemakers.

Perkins said she has advocated on behalf of her daughter Trekia Perkins, 11, a sixth grader at Oxon Hill John Hanson French Immersion School, to have a challenging curriculum, and wrote letters and met with transportation officials in the school system administration about the safety of the area surrounding her daughter bus stop. Perkins, who is a licensed real estate agent, said she would use her background in property and project management to identify facilities that are not up to par and what costs are associated with improving them and how that meshes with the school budget. Perkins added said she will need to research where the money is going for supplies and how it can be funneled directly into the classroom. think the teachers become disenfranchised and sometimes the students if they don have the basic necessities, Perkins said. like paper is such a basic necessity. So I like to be able to see how money and resources are used and try to reallocate the funding so their needs can be met. said she can relate to parents in her district as a single mother who is also going back to school and wants to boost morale and involvement. Perkins is a graduate student taking online courses through Philadelphia Drexel University to get a master degree in property management by September. do understand that there are many in the community like myself [who] are overcoming obstacles, Perkins said. completely understand some of the obstacles that many of the parents in our community are facing. I would like to help to be able to get our parents more involved and to be able to get them essentially involved in their kids education. said at the PTA meetings she has attended, parents concerns range from the nutritional value of school lunches to the safety of the bus stop in the morning. issue is an issue I plan to consider and to address accordingly, Perkins said. my role as a board member who represents District 7, I would like to form a relationship amongst the community, amongst parents so they will feel empowered to come to me and say, is what we would like to see happen.
