MCA recognized and thanked retiring Dranesville District School Board Member Elaine Tholen for her service to the community. The MCA has appreciated Elaine’s willingness to listen to MCA's concerns and her tireless efforts to work with MCA to improve the education and support of our children.

Throughout Ms. Tholen’s term, she attended many of MCA’s meetings, answered questions, and obtained detailed information from FCPS staff in response to our questions and data to be used for our analysis. Some of our collaborative projects included:

• Analysis of McLean HS pyramid and Kent Gardens ES boundary changes,
• Analysis of FCPS student enrollment projections, which helped us develop our independent assessment of future school capacity demand.
• Annual MCA public meeting of the Superintendent with local K-12 students.
• Annual MCA Student Jobs Fair.

MCA is grateful for the positive relationship we’ve enjoyed with Elaine over the past four years..
