Spall to Fill Vacant Seat on School Board

Spall Swearing InOctober 22, 2021 - The School Board of the City of Manassas unanimously voted on October 21 to appoint Jill Spall to serve as its newest member. Spall was appointed to fill the vacant seat previously held by Sanford S. Williams, who resigned effective October 1.

"I'm excited for the opportunity to serve the community by advocating for students and teachers in a responsible and forward-thinking way," said Spall.

 “Mrs. Spall’s commitment to our schools is evident by her involvement for more than 20 years,” said Suzanne Seaberg, board chair. “We welcome her valuable input and look forward to working with her as we serve the students and families of Manassas City.”

Spall has been a Manassas City resident for twenty-seven years, where she and her husband are business owners. Her three children are graduates of Osbourn High School, and since their time as students, she has been involved in the school community in various ways.  In 2010, she founded the MCPS “Backpack Attack Program” that focused on providing meals for students to take home for the weekend.  She has served as a clerical substitute and volunteer and several MCPS advisory boards and committees.   Additionally, she is a 2017 graduate of the MCPS Parent and Community Leadership Academy (PCLA).

Spall says she desires to continue advocating for the children of the City of Manassas.

“Having grown up here, I have a strong connection to our local community and the time and energy to work for the benefit of our youth.”

Spall will serve on the City’s school board through December 31, 2022, the remainder of Williams’ term.
