Governor Northam has designated April 2021 as the Month of the Military Child. Frequent moves, family separations through deployments, and reintegration following deployments can make school, home, and community life challenging for military children. Yet, even in such circumstances, these students continually demonstrate resilience and perseverance. Their contributions to our schools and communities also include unique and valuable perspectives on learning, friendships, and growing up.

[03/27/21]   On Friday, March 26, 2021, MSAAC issued a call to action to our community supporters asking for help in ensuring those in favor of equity in education have their voices heard. We would like to sincerely apologize to anyone who may have felt as though your voice would be silenced or who has been offended by our post as that is not now, nor has it ever been our goal or intention.

While we stand behind the five call to action steps, the post that accompanied them was shared in error. It was a personal statement taken out of context and not at all reflective of the MSAAC committee or LCPS as a whole, and does not align with our mission and goals.

We are fully supportive and welcoming of all opposing views and the rights of those who hold them to be able to express them in a civil manner. We do not condone violence nor threats of violence. We are a group of parent volunteers focused on ensuring equity in education for all LCPS students.

MSAAC is dedicated to advancing the academic, social, and cultural development of every student and to ensuring that the needs of all minority students are met. As one of two parent-led advisory committees to the Loudoun County Public School Board, we serve as a critical component to ensuring these needs are addressed throughout the system. Our goal is to help ensure all learners in the classroom have a positive and supportive environment.

We are heartbroken to learn about the atrocities that occurred last night in Atlanta. MSAAC stands firmly in solidarity with the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. We are clear that anti-racism includes Asian-Americans. We must condemn all hate!

Founded by the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE), EWeek is dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding and interest in engineering and technology careers.

What better way to celebrate this week than to showcase a few local Loudoun Black engineering role models. A study has shown that when Black youth have exposure to the personal and professional accomplishments of Black engineers, they know that an engineering career is possible. #EngineersWeek #BlackHistoryMonth #BlackEngineersofLoudoun #InspiringFutureEngineers #NSBEAlum #CareerAndTechnicalEducation #EngineeringMentors

A great loss. We sincerely thank you, Mr. Bryan for your vision for MSAAC and send our deepest condolences to all who love you.

Loudoun, it's with profound sadness that I report Herb Bryan has passed. Herb was a wonderful, kind and humble man. He founded the Minority Student Achievement Advisory Committee (MSAAC) in Loudoun and always encouraged parents to be active and forward leaning in their children's schools. He positively impacted thousands of students and parents in Loudoun. Herb was also a founder, or member of various community organizations and committees.

Herb was a mentor to so many of us, always encouraging, always kind and always a gentleman.

My sincere condolences to his wife and family. May his memory be a blessing to you.

His legacy is long. Thank you my friend Farewell for now. I'll see you again. 😔💔
