The Board of Education on Aug. 10 appointed a fifth member to its ethics panel. Janice Wilson of Waldorf joins the Board’s ethics panel to serve a term of one year. Her term expires June 30, 2022.
The Board opened its search for an additional member earlier this year to fill a vacancy on the current panel. Wilson joins current ethics panel members Adrienne Morgan Davis, Yonelle Moore Lee, Jessie Morris and William Olmsted. The term for each panel member expires June 30, 2022.
Wilson retired from the Central Intelligence Agency with more than 35 years of experience. She is the immediate past president of the Charles County Branch of the NAACP and served as the third vice-president for the Maryland State NAACP for four years. She is a training consultant in areas such as diversity and inclusion and cultural competency, and is a member of the Charles County Criminal Justice Reform Task and the College of Southern Maryland’s Diversity Advisory Council. Wilson was recently appointed to a four-year term by Gov. Larry Hogan to serve on the Maryland Judiciary Nominating Committee.
The ethics panel interprets ethics regulations and provides advisory opinions to Board members and employees subject to the regulations. The ethics panel is appointed every four years prior to the election of Board of Education members.
The panel reviews complaints concerning any alleged ethics violation and receives and maintains all forms required to be filed under the ethics regulations. Ethics panel members meet at least once annually to review disclosure forms and as necessary to respond to inquiries.
