    A Renowned Physician, Humanitarian, and Educator 

    On October 27, 2005, the Board of Education unanimously approved a motion to name the New Regional High School in Upper Marlboro after Dr. Henry A. Wise, Jr. Dr. Wise was the first African-American physician in the county to be admitted to practice at Prince George’s Hospital and was a mentor to hundreds of Prince George’s County residents. Along with his wife, Roberta Wise, he founded the Youth Motivational Program to provide training to more than 1,000 young people in the region and scholarships worth more than $25,000. Dr. Wise also served in the Armed Forces as a Tuskegee airman, and received the Purple Heart; the Air Medal for Combat Missions flown in World War II; the Certificate of Valor for Courage in Combat, and the Tuskegee Airmen Pioneer Award for Distinguished Service and Historic Achievement. 

    By naming the new regional high school the Dr. Henry A. Wise, Jr. High School, the Board of Education hopes to motivate, guide, and inspire its students to reach the highest levels of academic excellence, and build a foundation of future community leaders who share the same principles Dr. Wise taught and demonstrated in his lifetime.
