A member of three Parent Teacher Organizations (PTO), and lecturer at the Ohio State University Sumia Mohamed has declared interest to contest for the Upper Arlington Board of Education, Columbus, Ohio.
“As a mother with two sons in the school district, Sumia understands that each child is unique. Public schools are for all children, and she intends to support every child,” said Sumia Mohamed team.
“Sumia will optimize student learning so that they will feel pleased with their achievement. Student safety, belonging, and wellness are priorities within our district. Sumia supports these priorities.”
According to the campaign team, “Sumia is a Sudanese new American, environmental scientist and practitioner, lecturer at The Ohio State University, project manager, and mother with two sons who are attending Upper Arlington Schools.
“Since choosing Upper Arlington as her home seven years ago, Sumia has completed two master’s degrees and volunteered extensively both in our schools and throughout our local community.”
The campaign team described Sumia as “A strong believer in applying all learning to real life experiences, Sumia Mohamed frequently gives back to the community and country that has given much to her.
“As a member of three Parent Teacher Organizations (PTO), Sumia honored our educators by assisting with teacher appreciation events and elevated the uniqueness of all UA students by leading diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) programs such as the high school’s Human Connection Festival (Celebrating Cultures & Diversity). This inaugural, schoolwide, day-long event is considered to be the premier DEI event in Upper Arlington Schools and received a Community Relations Commission grant from the City of Upper Arlington.”
