Evans Brings Expertise in Education to Chesapeake Board

Friday, September 04, 2009

WYE MILLS – Vaughn D. Evans, Sr., the principal of North Dorchester Middle School, was recently named to the Chesapeake College Board of Trustees.

"I would like to expose as many people as possible to Chesapeake College," Evans said. "I truly believe that Chesapeake has something to offer every man, woman and child in our area."

The new board member’s term begins this summer and runs until 2014.

Evans said that he is grateful to Gov. Martin O’Malley for the appointment. Serving on the college’s board, Evans said, will give him the opportunity to enhance education in a new way. As a lifelong educator, Evans said he will bring several perspectives to the board.

"More than anything, though, I’ll keep the Chesapeake students in mind whenever we’re asked to make a decision," Evans said. "Ultimately, the board must make decisions that serve the current students well and ensure that Chesapeake continues to be such a valuable resource for the community."

A native of Dorchester County, Evans earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees at Bowie State University. He is currently a doctoral candidate at Walden University.

After working as both a teacher and administrator in Calvert County, Evans returned to his native Dorchester County to work in the local school system. Evans has served as principal for Warwick Elementary, Maces Lane Middle School and North Dorchester High School during the last 17 years in education.

Evans, who has four children, resides in Hurlock with his wife, Sharon. A member of Mt. Hope United Methodist Church in Hurlock, he is also a member of the Dorchester County Board of Appeals and the Hurlock Lions Club.
