Gov. Ralph S. Northam has reappointed Princess R. Moss ’83 to the UMW Board of Visitors. Moss, who served on the BOV from 2007 to 2011, is vice president of the National Education Association (NEA), the nation’s largest professional teaching organization.
Moss succeeds Sharon Bulova in a four-year term that expires June 30, 2024.
With an undergraduate degree in music education, Moss taught elementary school for 21 years. She was elected NEA vice president in August 2020 with the stated goal of providing safe learning spaces for all students and addressing public school inequities that were exposed by the pandemic.
Moss, who earned a master’s degree in secondary administration and supervision from the University of Virginia, served two terms as president of the Virginia Education Association (VEA) and more than a decade on the boards of directors for NEA and VEA.
