Alfreda Harris elected vice chairperson at annual organizational meeting
Members of the Boston School Committee elected Michael D. O’Neill as their next chairperson, succeeding immediate-past chairperson Rev. Gregory G. Groover, Sr., who served in that capacity for the past four years. During the committee’s annual organizational meeting, members also elected Alfreda Harris to serve as vice chairperson.
“Michael is the perfect choice to lead the school committee at this important time, and I’m proud that this group continues to put the education of our students first,” Mayor Thomas M. Menino said. “Michael will serve as an advocate for youth across our city, building on all the past success of Reverend Groover.”
Mr. O’Neill, who was appointed December 31 by Mayor Menino to his second four-year term on the committee, is a Charlestown resident and a graduate of the Boston Public Schools.
