"Public Education is a foundation for life"

Janet Heavner


Take Part in Something Great

Reaching for a Book

A caring heart, an always learning mind. 

As a public health professional, I've worked with people from various educational and cultural backgrounds to design and implement programs and research that lead to healthier lives. Since retiring to my hometown of Cumberland, MD, I am eager to work with local parents, students, teachers, and the community to take public education in Western Maryland to the next level. 

My goal is to make sure every student has the best possible education experience in a safe environment. I believe that a strong public education is the best tool to fight the poverty that plagues Western Maryland. Providing our children with the means and resources to lead meaningful, impactful lives within our community improves us all.
