Dr Stanley Onye
I am a family man who has been married for 30 years to Mrs. Carolyn Wachuku Onye, a hardworking and dedicated woman.
A woman that has worked very hard to keep the family together.
Between us, we have three beautiful girls, Nneka, Jennifer and Stephanie, a son Odell and a grand-daughter Kyla. These children are all products of Prince George’s County public schools. Jennifer is currently a math and science school teacher in Prince George’s County Public School. Stephanie is an engineering student in one of Maryland’s prestigious universities.
I have also had the luck of being born and raised by two wonderful, hardworking, civic-minded parents, and a wife and children who have been supportive beyond any reasonable expectation. I also have brothers and sisters in Nigeria. These people have worked very hard to contribute to my welfare.
My wife has been one of the driving forces for the campaign and is the strategic brain. We are a very religious family and are guided by very good church family with dedicated pastors.
