Hampton School Board recognized during School Board Appreciation Month
Hampton City Schools joins school divisions throughout the Commonwealth in February to celebrate School Board Appreciation Month. Nearly 850 elected and appointed school board members throughout Virginia are recognized by schools and communities for their service and dedication to public education. HCS School Board members include: Stephanie Jackson Afonja; Tina Banks-Gray; Ann Cherry; Joe Kilgore, chairman; Dr. Richard Mason; Jason Samuels; and Dr. Reginald Woodhouse, vice chairman.
The Virginia School Boards Association theme for this year is “115 Years of Providing Leadership Advocacy and Support,” which reflects the partnership of the Virginia School Boards Association with local school board members as they serve their local divisions and advocate for public education with local, state, and federal leaders on behalf of all students.
Local school boards keep the public in charge of public schools, since they represent their community’s beliefs and values. In Hampton City Schools, school board members must develop policies and make decisions on complex education and social issues impacting the entire community.
Members of the Hampton School Board were recognized during the Board’s scheduled virtual meeting on February 3, 2021.Students introduced the Board members and each were provided with a “Mission Possible” toolbox.
We thank our School Board for their time and dedication to serving the students of Hampton City Schools.
