Michelle F.” Micky” Ogburn

Micky Ogburn represents the Three Chopt District, and in January 2016 became chair of the Henrico School Board. Mrs. Ogburn graduated from Longwood College with degrees in elementary education and history education. She has been a teacher for more than 20 years in pre-K, second, fifth and sixth grades in Charleston, West Virginia and in the Virginia counties of Culpeper, Prince William, Fairfax and Henrico. Mrs. Ogburn was an intervention teacher at Henrico County’s Short Pump Elementary School for the seven years prior to her election to the School Board. She has been an active PTA board member at Short Pump Elementary School, Short Pump and Pocahontas middle schools, and Deep Run High School. Mrs. Ogburn has also been an active community volunteer with several youth sports associations, school-based sports booster organizations, the Salvation Army Angel Tree program, and her neighborhood homeowner’s association.

Mrs. Ogburn and her husband, David, have lived in Henrico County for more than 20 years. Their two sons attended Henrico County Public Schools from elementary school through high school. Mrs. Ogburn’s experience as an HCPS parent, PTA board member and volunteer, and teacher gives her a unique perspective in her service to the School Board and a first-hand knowledge of the concerns of students and their parents. She feels that going directly from the classroom to the School Board has given her the experience necessary to critically evaluate whether student needs are being met.

Mrs. Ogburn looks forward to fostering a continuing dialogue with members of the School Board, HCPS staff and the community in order to improve student achievement.
