Working for you and our children to build our community’s future.
My name is Jennifer T. Wall. My husband, three children and I have lived in Gainesville since 2004. Our children are attending or are graduates of PWC schools, including Mountain View Elementary, Gravely Elementary, Bull Run Middle, and Battlefield High. Before our children were born, I earned a law degree, passed the bar and worked for a legislative research firm. In 2000 I left practice to dedicate my time to my children. My focus in law school and in practice was education, state and local government, and constitutional law. Those are still areas of focus for me today and I’ve enjoyed keeping up on those issues, especially as they affect us locally in Gainesville.
As a parent, I know how critical education is to the future of our children, neighborhoods, community and country. Over the years I have volunteered in local schools in many ways. I have served on advisory councils and boundary and advisory committees, helped in classrooms, supported PTO events, assisted the bands and orchestras, chaperoned many events and baked cookies for our teachers.
I currently serve as Chair of the PWCS Superintendent’s Advisory Committee on Gifted Education. Until this year I served as Chair and Vice-Chair of the Bull Run Middle School Principal’s Advisory Council. I’ve also worked with PWCS administrators and other members of our community on boundary committees that determine boundaries for our middle and elementary schools. I serve on these committees because I want to see our educational system work effectively and I want to make a positive difference for our students.
For those same reasons I’ve decided to run for the Gainesville District seat on the Prince William County School Board. I hope you will support me as I work for you and our children to build our community’s future.

Why I am Running
I am running for the school board because I want to see Prince William County Schools achieve the goal of a world class education. Our schools assist families and communities in making a positive difference in students’ lives as they grow up and take their place in the world as leaders, thinkers, workers and innovators. I have always worked to help my children be the best that they can be, and I want to extend that effort to reach the students of our community. Our students and teachers need strong advocates who look out for their best interests and fight to make sure they are getting the opportunities they need to succeed. As a public servant, I will advance the best interests of our children and families, and I will be an effective advocate for the students and teachers of Prince William County.
Who I am
My name is Jen Wall. I am a mother, a spouse, and a 15-year resident of Gainesville. I am an involved parent who is passionate about the education we provide our children and about finding ways to tailor that education to each student’s needs. I am a lawyer by training, but left traditional practice 18 years ago to raise our three children and to dedicate myself to being actively involved in their education and growth.
