Share This

The Baltimore Teachers Union  Retiree Chapter (BTU 340R) recently had newly elected executive board members sworn in to office. These officers represent the retirees’ interests in a number of different capacities. Our retirees are among the state federation’s most loyal and consistent volunteers for community outreach efforts, phone banking in support of union-endorsed candidates, and lobbying in Annapolis and in Baltimore city.

Velma Hicks was re-elected to president, while Thomas Frazier will serve as vice president. The secretary is Geneva Harris, while Blanch Morgan III is the treasurer. Ozelle Howell and Carolyn Caulk-Smith will serve as financial and corresponding secretary, respectively. Caulk-Smith is also on the AFT-Maryland Executive Board. In that role, she serves as Retiree Area Vice President.

AFT-Maryland Secretary-Treasurer Kenya Campbell swore the officers into their positions. The swearing in took place at the retiree regularly scheduled meeting. We’re excited for the officers to lead the retiree chapter and for the chapter’s continued support of AFT-Maryland in its various programs.
