MAPS is excited to announce Hawa Adula as the newest member of its National Board.
Hawa brings her experience in serving and supporting public and educational institutions to the role of Acting Communications and Advocacy Director.
Hawa is a Federal strategy and analytics consultant at Deloitte. Thus far, she has worked with Human and Health Services and the International Revenue Service (IRS), where she is currently focused.

The Advisory Board seeks to provide strategic feedback on the school’s systems, curricular choices, policies, and practices and help drive progress towards anti-racism initiatives. The Friends of Democracy Prep Board provides valuable guidance on real estate investments for the charter/public school.
