PLC VICE PRESIDENT

Cheryl McFadden is our PLC Vice President. In 2018, her son started his journey to success at Williamsburg Charter High school as a freshman. The year 2018 was a year of great change for her. Ms. McFadden’s son entered High School and she was elected PLC Vice President. Also, that year she participated in an employer-sponsored mentorship program as a mentee. That experience taught her that we all need someone to support, encourage, and guide us to be the best we can be. She believes our children deserve the best. The best education and the best high school experience filled with the support they need to be on the road to success. She feels that parents have the power to ensure they receive the best by making their voices heard. If parents do not stand up for our children. Who will?

“All kids need is a little help, a little hope and somebody who believes in them.”
-Magic Johnson

-Nelson Mandela

WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO

OUR PLC MISSION

Together we can Change History and Change Lives.
