She dedicated her life to ensuring the educational needs of all students were addressed and their potential realized. Her journey to becoming a pioneer and champion for education began at an early age. In 1957, an eight-year old Maria Whittemore was among the first Black students to integrate the all-white Walkersville Elementary School, ending racial segregation of public schools in Frederick County. This major milestone was merely the beginning. Maria later graduated from Walkersville High School and went on to earn a BS in psychology from Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, followed by a MA in School Administration from Hood College. Upon her graduation from Lincoln University, Maria returned to Frederick County where she began her 45- year tenure with Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS). She worked as a teacher and later an Assistant Principal at several FCPS elementary and middle schools. She eventually transitioned to the Board of Education Central Office where she served as the FCPS Multicultural Education and Minority Achievement Coordinator.   The deadline to apply is May 16th.  Click here for application.
