Moreno Valley is clearly in need of strong leadership, in city government, education, and business. As we have reported in articles on the Moreno Valley Unified School District, the city’s schools continue to remain stable and strong. If history repeats itself, at the next school board meeting, Dr. Denise Fleming, current Vice President of the Moreno Valley School District, will be its next president.

She won her seat in 2012 and has been a strong advocate for students. Currently Dr. Fleming is the Director for the African American Coalition, Educational Chair for the Black Caucus, sits on the Advisory Board for Parkview Community Hospital, Director for Harvest Community Development Center and an adjunct college professor. Like Nelson Mandela, she believes “that education must be our number one priority as it is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world.”

“We share this ideology in Moreno Valley, “ she said in an interview. “In the majority of our 40 schools we have created African American Parent Alliance Councils (AAPAC). This is a parent group designed to focus and share issues and concerns in the African American homes. The group is a collaboration of parents, community and stakeholders. We have other programs in the district that have assisted MVUSD in exceeding the state required scores and improving the levels of our African American students. We are very excited to see the numbers of our African American students and all our students continue to improve. The District continues to receive statewide and national recognition for its accomplishments in academic, sports and STEM.”

This month district board representatives will fly to Sacramento to receive three Golden Bell Awards for its academic accomplishments.
