Jacquelyn believes in the power of an education. “We need to give children the necessary tools and guidance to enable them to reach their full potential. The Board of Education members, administrators, teachers, parents, and members of the community must all strive to work together to create a rigorous, yet caring learning environment for all of our children. I would be honored to serve on the Board of Education for West Deptford Township.”
