PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, Va. – The Prince William County School Board Wednesday night selected Woodbridge resident, Dr. Michael E. Wooten, to fill the vacant Occoquan District Seat.
Wooten was selected in a unanimous Board vote from among thirteen applicants for the post vacated by former Board Member Grant Lattin, who resigned in May. Wooten will serve on an interim basis until voters choose a long-term replacement on Election Day to serve though the end of 2015.
Board Chairman-at-Large Milton C. Johns praised the “wonderful group of qualified and motivated candidates” from which Wooten was chosen.
The new Board Member termed his appointment “a wonderful opportunity to serve the students of Prince William County.”
Wooten holds multiple graduate degrees and recently earned his Ed.D in Higher Education Management from the University of Pennsylvania. He is a Professor of Contract Management at DefenseAcquisitionUniversity, and has worked with Prince William County Public Schools through a long running Taekwondo program partnership.
Wooten’s two children are graduates of Prince William County Public Schools.
