Ericka Copeland-Dansby is a candidate for Cincinnati School Board and received the endorsement of the city’s largest newspaper, The Enquirer.
She works for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Cincinnati as director of resource development, handling fundraising, marketing and promoting its youth programs. Her 25-year career in the not-for-profit sector working with the disadvantaged will give her a valuable perspective on the challenges facing the schools. She has served as executive director of Mercy Health – St. John, a social-service agency in Over-the-Rhine, and with the Urban League of Greater Cincinnati as director of community and health initiatives. She’s demonstrated a commitment to serving underserved populations and wants to improve the academic achievement of all students by emphasizing accountability of teachers and administrators and measuring results. She preaches transparency with the community and has an upbeat style that should mesh well with other board members and advocacy groups.
