multi-faceted community advocate. business owner. school board member. wife. mother. friend.
Karitsa believes that the most important change we can make as a community is to improve educational opportunities for our children. It was this core belief that drove her to step forward and commit to making a difference. In 2014 in her hometown of Chattanooga, Tennessee, at the age of 33, she was elected to the Hamilton County School Board. At the time of her election, she became the youngest member ever elected to the board and the first African American female to represent her district’s community. She has brought new energy, innovative ideas and trustworthy leadership to the Hamilton County School Board. Karitsa is currently serving in her third term on the Board as the District 5 Representative.
The Educate 2 Elevate Fund was founded by Karitsa Mosley Jones in the fall of 2018. It is dedicated to enriching, enhancing and supporting the students, teachers and school within the schools in the District 5 community. The Educate 2 Elevate Fund pledges to commit to providing all the elementary, middle, and high schools within District 5 with funding to assist them with meeting as many of their school community needs as possible.
