A Prince George’s County Public Schools executive was named one of the most powerful women in D.C.

Chief Executive Officer Monica Goldson, who became the first female county native to lead the school system, appeared on Washingtonian magazine’s list of Washington’s most powerful women. 

“Experienced. Tested. Homegrown. Prince George’s County Public Schools CEO Dr. Monica E. Goldson leads Maryland’s second-largest school system — the same schools where she was a student, teacher and principal … Monica is building on the school system’s progress with an eye towards enhancing academic excellence and equity,” the magazine said. 

Goldson, who started her career teaching math at Suitland High School and was the founding principal of Dr. Henry A. Wise Jr. High School, also appeared on the magazine’s August “guest list.”
