“In Rose Hall, Joel McDonald Jr., offers a refreshing depth of knowledge. He articulately argued the case for closer coordination with teachers on curriculum changes. At 28, McDonald has already worked for the schools six years; he recently started an IT consulting business. As a board member he would be an advocate for the division’s certificate and workforce readiness programs; he’s a graduate of one himself.” – The Virginian-Pilot, October 15th, 2012
This endorsement echoes what supporters of Joel McDonald have been saying from day one of his campaign for Virginia Beach School Board. Joel McDonald has the experience and dedication needed to provide every student an opportunity to succeed in Virginia Beach.
