The Prince William County School Board elected Jennifer T. Wall to a one-year term as the Vice Chairwoman of the Board, effective Jan. 4, 2023. Wall was elected in November of 2019 to represent the Gainesville Magisterial District on the School Board.
Wall graduated summa cum laude from Brigham Young University with a degree in humanities-English in 1992. She earned a Juris Doctor in 1997 from the J. Reuben Clark Law School. Her focus in law school and in practice was state and local government and constitutional law. Wall and her husband moved to Northern Virginia in 1999 to pursue professional opportunities after graduating from law school and doing post-graduate work in England. Before leaving practice to raise her family, Wall worked in the field of legislative research.
Wall has been a long-time volunteer in the community. She has served in middle and high school band and orchestra programs, as a chaperone for school events and field trips, in Parent Teacher Organization activities, and a parent tutor in the classroom. Since 2017, through a structured grant-funded project, and in association with Children’s National Hospital’s First Steps Project, Wall has provided emotional and instrumental peer support to parents of children newly diagnosed with chronic illness. Before that, she assisted in establishing and administering the J. Reuben Clark Law Society’s Religious Liberty Student Writing Competition.
As a School Board member, Wall actively participates in professional development opportunities to improve her ability to represent her district’s students, families, and teachers. Because of her commitment to excellence, she makes it a priority to visit school events and activities, to maintain awareness of issues and conditions in the 12 schools in the Gainesville district, and to provide responsive constituent services. Since her election in 2020, Wall has served on the Safe Schools Advisory Council, School Health Advisory Board, and Internal Audit Committee, with the goal of seeking continuous improvement for Prince William County Public Schools.
Wall and her husband have three children. Their oldest two children earned advanced diplomas from Battlefield High School in 2018 and 2021. Their third child is currently attending Battlefield High School and participates in the Center for Applied Science, Interactive, and Information Technology specialty program and dual enrollment courses. Wall and her family are active in community affairs and in their local church congregation.
