Ms. Manning has been endorsed by numerous leaders in our community but her most important endorsements are from teachers and parents:
Marcella Rust, Retired VB Teacher-Kemps Landing: I strongly endorse Victoria Manning as an at-large candidate for the Virginia Beach School Board. I have witnessed her enthusiasm for Virginia Beach's school children, her dedication and courage for the rights of parents, and her sincere concern for the city's teachers. No one will fight harder than Vicky for what is right and just.
Carine McCandless, New York Times Best Selling Author: & VB Parent: Vicky Manning gets things done. She was the first person to publicly demand transparency from the administration on the issues of “Fair & Equitable” / Standards Based Grading. She tirelessly investigated veiled policy changes and surveyed countless teachers & parents to ensure our voices were heard. I look forward to her continued efforts to promote accountability and practical, positive change within our schools and throughout our community.
Professor Raymond Cheng, Ph.D & VB Parent: I enthusiastically support Vicky Manning for School Board. She has been an energetic and courageous advocate for children, parents and teachers in our community. As a Board member, she will promote academic excellence, and transparency in the administration.
Cameron Bailey, Student, Class of 2017: Since my first days in school, my parents have instilled in me the values of hard work, exceeding expectations and assuming responsibility for my actions. Mrs. Manning maintains these same values, and I know she will work tirelessly to keep our school system’s academic standards high.
