On the Passing of Paul L. Vance

vance-300The Loudoun NAACP would like to offer their sincere condolences the family and friends on the passing of Montgomery County NAACP member and former Montgomery County Public Schools Superintendent Paul L. Vance.

Vance, 83, served as MCPS superintendent from 1991 to 1999 and retired after eight years as serving as the system’s first black superintendent.

Vance also served as superintendent of DC Public Schools from 2000 to 2003 before resigning as the school system was going through a period of significant change.

Vance was a member of the Montgomery County NAACP and was elected president in 2011. On behalf of the Loudoun chapter, we are thankful to Paul Vance for his service in education and with the community.
