Harford County Public Schools

As the voice of Harford County Public Schools, Jillian Lader has built trust with the community through consistency and reassurance.

“My ability to communicate clearly, succinctly, and thoroughly with stakeholders ensures Harford County Public Schools stays connected,” Lader wrote.

As the school’s manager of communications, she started “Cool Harford Schools,” a local cable educational program about the school system. During the pandemic, she helped create “Littles University,” a program with the Harford County Education Foundation that provides books to children up to age 5, to help jumpstart literacy.

“While others were struggling to make connections during the COVID-19 global pandemic, we were connecting with children and families that aren’t even in our school system yet,” Lader wrote. “With each book, I design and produce a video message. These messages range from reading the story aloud, sharing tips on book walks, and identifying the parts of a book, to talking about how to read punctuation marks with our “Littles.”

Lader earned a Master of Business Administration from Wilmington University and graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor’s degree from Eastern Nazarene College.

She began her career as a paraeducator with the school system and held jobs with the Department of Investigations Administrative Support and Human Resources.
