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, vice chairman; Joe Kilgore; Dr. Richard Mason, chairman; Jason Samuels; and Dr. Reginald Woodhouse.
The Virginia School Boards Association theme for this year is “Building the Future of Public Education” 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.
Members of the Hampton School Board were recognized during the Board’s scheduled meeting on February 2, 2022. Board members viewed a video that was created honoring them as they continue to rise above for the students and staff of Hampton City Schools. The animated video included music from Eaton Fundamental Middle School’s Percussion Ensemble, under the direction of Lisa Farrell. Additionally, each were presented with a hot air balloon cookie basket that included “sandbag” rock paperweights created by 4th and 5th grade students from Armstrong School for the Arts under the direction of their art teacher Debbie Taylor.
We thank our School Board for their time and dedication to serving the students of Hampton City Schools.
