Faith Gibson Hubbard
Faith Gibson Hubbard is the President of the Ward Five Council on Education, a passionate education advocate and full time Ph.D. student at Virginia Tech’s Center for Public Administration and Policy. Faith, who is a former public school teacher, focuses her research primarily on public education issues specific to Washington, D.C. – such as the importance of neighborhood schools in urban school districts, and the unintended consequences of resource constraints on public education due to the increase of charter schools in urban school districts.
In addition to her over 10 years of experience in the arena of public education, Faith also has a heart for service to her community. In addition to working in the Ward 5 community in various capacities, Faith also is heavily involved with mentoring young girls through her sorority, Delta Sigma Theta, and as a community coach for Girls on the Run at the Friendship Public Charter School Woodridge campus.
Faith, who is currently pursuing her Ph.D. in Public Policy, with a focus on education policy, from Virginia Tech, holds a Masters of Public Administration from Old Dominion University (Norfolk, Va.) and a Bachelor of Arts in Communications/Public Relations from Georgia State University (Atlanta).
