India Ochs
For AACPS Board District 5

India Ochs
for AACPS Board District 6

India Ochs is not just a life-long resident of District 6, but a life-long advocate of Anne Arundel County Public Schools and our youth. Born and raised in Annapolis, India is a product of Head Start, Central Special, Hillsmere Elementary School, the former Annapolis Junior High, and Annapolis Senior High School. Some of her best memories- and learning – came from AACPS’ gifted & talented programs at AACC and the Naval Academy.

From grades 8-12, India was active in the Chesapeake Regional Association of Student Councils (CRASC), including being chief legislative coordinator during the passage of the service learning graduation requirement, securing partial voting rights for the Maryland State Student on the Board, and banning smoking at all county school campuses.

Her experiences in school and CRASC – along with all the history and beauty Annapolis and the Bay has to offer – made India decide at an early age to raise her family in Annapolis and never give up on our public schools.

Hon. Delegate Shaneka Henson
for MD House of Delegate 30A

A visionary and humanitarian from an early age, Shaneka Henson was born into a family that changes communities and impacts the world. Her parents, both former pastors, have traveled across Africa using their gifts and abilities to help build the least-reached communities of the region while serving underserved communities in Annapolis and surrounding areas as well.

A native of Annapolis, Shaneka has always been passionate about community service, dedicating her younger years to supporting missionary work and food pantry distributions in Annapolis. Her eagerness to “pay it forward” transitioned into adulthood as she worked with at-risk and underprivileged children, raised awareness about pro bono services to the homeless, and collaborated with interested stakeholders to discuss and confront domestic violence issues.
