Philly has a new school board

Mayor Cherelle Parker last week nominated nine individuals to serve on the Philadelphia Board of Education. The nominations have been transmitted to City Council for advice and consent.

“I am proud to announce my nine nominations for the Board of Education,” Parker said. “I promised to seek out the best candidates for this important board, and to identify a group that has the skills and experience, knowledge and wisdom to serve on our Board of Education. I said I wanted a school board with a diversity of skills, from different neighborhoods, sectors and communities, some with deep knowledge, some with new ideas, a group that truly reflects my vision of One Philly, a United City. I’m confident we’ve assembled that board, and that they are fully committed to sound governance and the best interests of the 197,000 students in our school system, as well as fami-

lies, faculty and staff.”

In all, 122 people applied to serve on the board. The nominating panel held two public meetings and conducted interviews with every candidate before forwarding a list of 27 potential appointees to Parker on March 12. The mayor and her senior team considered the potential appointees and con-

ducted additional interviews before she made her final choices. Following Council’s advice and consent, the new Board of Education will begin its term on May 1 or the next possible start date following Council’s proceedings.

Here are the appointees:

• Sarah-Ashley Andrews, a licensed professional counsel-

or and current board member who is a graduate of McCall Elementary and W.B. Saul High School.

• Crystal Cubbage, who formerly worked in engineering before becoming a teacher at Girard College, Shipley School and Germantown Friends. She now serves as executive director for the Philadelphia Learning

• Cheryl Harper, a graduate of Germantown High School. She’s been a teacher and vice principal, was in charge of human resources in the Philadelphia and Camden school districts and worked in the state Department of Education. She is currently a Trustee for Cheyney University.

• Whitney Jones, Chief Financial Officer at Children’s Crisis Treatment Center, a mental and behavioral health nonprofit serving children and families. He formerly held financial leadership positions with the KIPP network of schools and the DC Public Charter School Board.

Organizing for over 40 years!

In the early ‘80s, the closet industry was littered with many small, fledgling companies. The engineering background of Closet Factory founder John LaBarbera, provided him with the critical knowledge required to avoid the precarious wall-hung systems that others provided, and to instead, develop a structurally sound floor-based system.

That crucial and fundamental decision would not only provide our clients with the unique ability to adjust the system to their own needs, but it became the foundation for the changes that revolutionized the closet industry.

On February 9, 1983, Closet Factory opened its first location in California and provided people with custom closets, offices, entertainment centers, garage systems, pantries, bookshelves, and more.

The key word is more. More, because everyone in our company is focused on you and your needs. More, because everyone here is dedicated to delivering

exactly the product you want. More, because since the beginning, our belief and philosophy has been to provide you with the shopping experience you deserve. [pullquote]Our number one goal is to design a system that you will love. [/pullquote]We accomplish this by listening to you carefully and involving you in every step of the design process. We believe that every unit we make is as

unique as the person who owns it. No wonder so many of our clients refer us to their families and friends while continuing to use us for other projects themselves. And we don’t stop there. While other companies try to imitate the original, we will never stop advancing and expanding our product lines and the services that we offer.

Today we are nationally recognized as a leader in custom organizational storage system style. We have said it before and we’ll say it again: “No one puts more into your closets than we do.”

Whether you want the clean look of a classic, all white, melamine design or a traditional look created with real wood stained to match the other furniture in your home, Closet Factory will give you the look you want. We’ll also provide the quality and craftsmanship necessary for your design to last for years to come. Visit closetfactory.com for more information. ••

Eagles draft needs quickly coming into focus

The never-ending National Football League season is barreling toward another milestone. The annual NFL Draft is just weeks away, beginning on April 25.

The initial free agency period has passed with the Eagles making more than their share of interesting moves. Most recently, the team brought back Avonte Maddox after allowing him to explore free agency. The team also extended the contracts of safety Reed Blankenship and left tackle Jordan Mailata.

To a great degree, the 2024 roster is set except for its draft class of eight picks.

By design, the final makeup of the team is far from set. The draft is just the next aspect of team building that the Eagles will go through.

Free agency addressed the offensive side of the ball primarily, especially with the flashy signing of former Giants running back Saquon Barkley.

Here are the biggest needs the Eagles have yet to answer.

Offensively, the signing of lineman Matt Hennessey is insurance for the plan of inserting Cam Jurgens in at the center spot that opened up with the retirement of Jason Kelce. The rest of the line, Lane Johnson, Mailata and Landon

Dickerson, have all been locked down for at least the next three years.

Barkley answers nearly every question in the backfield, as long as he remains healthy. Former Steelers starter Kenny Pickett was brought in as a short-term answer should Jalen Hurts miss time due to injury.

AJ Brown and DeVonta Smith give the Eagles one of the best pass-catching duos in the league. Add in Dallas Goedert and it is hard to find a much better trio. DeVante Parker and Parris Campbell will compete to become a much-needed fourth option in the offense.

Defensively, the Eagles in essence swapped Haason Reddick for Bryce Huff as pass rushers. The other most-notable addition is the return of C.J. Gardner-Johnson after a one-year stint in Detroit. CJGJ should bring back some much-needed swagger to the defense.

Elsewhere, they brought in an assortment of just-OK players at linebacker and defensive back that could see some time in a pinch. Basically, the Eagles are crossing their fingers in the hopes that somehow a good player will emerge from that bunch to help the defense.

Anyone who watched the Eagles in December and January knows that plan doesn’t always cash in.

The Eagles have eight picks in the

upcoming draft, with the first three coming in the first 53 picks. That fact means the Eagles should be able to bolster their roster and address some of the concerns that remain on the roster.

The Eagles’ first pick at No. 22 would be a perfect place to reach out for a topnotch college corner or safety who can play alongside Darius Slay, Maddox and Blankenship.

The next two picks, Nos. 50 and 53, will definitely feature at least one offensive lineman. That’s just the way the Eagles do things. The other pick would be best used on a wide receiver or elite tight end. The lack of a fourth option last year really limited the offense in a lot of ways, especially late in the year when

things became overly predictable. It’s always tricky to guess where the Eagles will go on the second and third day of the draft because it’s rare that executive vice president Howie Roseman isn’t keen on staying put on draft weekend. The Eagles have a fourth-round pick, three fifth-rounders and a sixthround pick.

Regardless, whichever picks they keep or which ones they acquire, finding a good young linebacker would be a perfect way to use that asset. Beyond that, they can easily revert to taking as many linemen on either side of the ball.

The draft is almost here, which is great. Even better, that means the season will be here before we know it. ••
