Bettina Umstead

School Board Member & Board Chair, Durham Public Schools Board of Education, Durham, NC

 

Bettina Umstead serves as the Board Chair for the Durham Public School Board of Education. As Board Chair, Ms. Umstead believes that every child is born with a purpose and immense potential, yet the impacts of systemic racism create significant barriers for children of color to thrive. Previously, Ms. Umstead worked for ten years at Student U, a community organization that uses the power of education to build a just and equitable Durham, guiding Black and Brown families on their journey to and through college. Under her leadership at Student U, 100% of students graduated from high school and 90% matriculated to post-secondary education. Ms. Umstead holds a Bachelor of Arts in Middle Grades Education from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
