Pamela Boozer-Strother is a devoted parent and a dedicated activist who is determined to put children first as the District 3 representative on the Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) Board of Education.
On November 6, 2018, the voters of District 3 elected Pamela to a 4-year term on the PGCPS Board of Education.
Pam was born in Prince George’s County, and, since 2005, she has made a home here with her wife, Margaret, and their son, Kyle. Before Kyle even started kindergarten, Pam started getting involved with the neighborhood school’s Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO). Now he is in second grade, and she understands exactly what it takes to set every child up for success.
Pam now serves as a PTO officer at Mount Rainier Elementary School in District 3. Over the past three years, she helped raise more than $20,000 for arts integration programs at Mount Rainier Elementary School and Thomas S. Stone Elementary School.
Pam is a fighter for more funding and resources for Prince George’s County public school students and educators. She has regularly attended PGCPS Board of Education meetings, where she has advocated for increased investment in school buildings, second language learning options and parent engagement.
Pam is a big believer in the power of the arts in education for self-expression and critical thinking. For many years, she served as a board member for the Gateway Community Development Corporation, which has driven the arts-centered economic revitalization of the Route 1 corridor. In that capacity, she helped support art and education residencies including steel drum instruction for Northwestern High School and a world percussion ensemble at Hyattsville Middle School. She was also involved in the opening of the Gateway Arts Center in Brentwood as well as the Prince George’s African American Museum and Cultural Center in North Brentwood. Today, she passionately supports Joe's Movement Emporium and the Club Joe's after-care program for PGCPS children.
This year, Pamela was awarded the Mighty Joe Impact Award from Joe's Movement Emporium.
In all of these leadership roles, Pam has had to successfully work with officials at the local and state level to bring the resources needed to serve the kids in her community.
Pam is an assistant coach with Prince George’s Soccer, Inc's league HMB, serving the kids of Hyattsville, Mount Rainier, Brentwood, North Brentwood and other District 3 families including University Park and Lewisdale. She serves on the Town of Brentwood Safety Committee.
Pam is a graduate of Alfred University (NY) and American University’s Kogod School of Business. She is a Democrat running for this nonpartisan Board of Education seat. Visit the Platform page to learn about Pam's priorities for PGCPS.
