Tisha Edwards deserves city's thanks [Letter]

As a former city school board member, I would like to join with others who have expressed their appreciation to Tisha Edwards for her outstanding service to Baltimore City schools ("Edwards would have been a good pick for schools Feb. 23).

Whether as principal, chief of staff, or interim CEO, she excelled at her job. Ms. Edwards was a key part of Andrés Alonso's leadership team and was instrumental in implementing his reforms. She deserves our sincere gratitude for her work on behalf of the students of Baltimore.

James Campbell, Baltimore
