Cambridge native Victoria L. Jackson-Stanley has spent her life dedicated to working for the greater good for the citizens of Maryland. She is currently serving her third term as Mayor of the City of Cambridge and holds the distinction of being the first woman and African American ever elected Mayor in that city. She has held numerous positions in state government, most recently as the Deputy Director of Dorchester County Department of Social Services and has held offices in many local and national organizations as well, including First Vice-Chair of the Maryland Democratic Party, and President of the Maryland Mayors Association. She earned a B.S. degree in Social Work from Salisbury University and an M.S. in Social Work from the Howard University School of Social Work. Jackson-Stanley was a young teenager enrolled in the formerly all-white Cambridge High School during the race riots of the summer of 1967. She will reflect on her personal experiences with this historic event and the Civil Rights movement on the Eastern Shore.
