Each year, the Tucker principal selects a history teacher to receive the award, which is accompanied by $300 to use as the teacher wishes.

Three Chopt ES students create, complete project at VHBG

More than 30 fourth- and fifth-grade students from the Three Chopt Elementary Gifted Zone Center volunteered their time June 6 at the Virginia Home for Boys and Girls as part of a community service project.

The project was the culmination of a first-time assignment that Gifted Zone Center teachers Brettany Bailey, Kasey Kolste and Catherine Kelly created for their students this year. They required the more than 70 students from their three classes (one fourth-grade and two fifth-grade) to complete a community service research project focused on various local organizations. Each student then demonstrated – through persuasive presentations and essays that highlighted an organization – the groups for which they wanted to volunteer. Fellow students and teachers then conducted a series of votes to select one organization that the students would support, and fourth-grader Greta Shope’s project on VHBG was chosen.

Business in brief


HCA Virginia’s Henrico Doctors’ Hospital is now offering Asleep Deep Brain stimulation (DBS) surgery to patients as a well-recognized treatment that improves motor symptoms of patients with early and advanced Parkinson’s disease. The new advancement allows neurosurgeons to perform DBS surgery with the guidance of an MRI in the operating room. This allows the patient to remain asleep for the entire surgery. Conventional DBS surgery, for treatment of conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, requires that patients be conscious during the procedure. Asleep DBS can provide a more comfortable experience for the patient. DBS improves the symptoms of Parkinson’s by directing electrical stimulation to either the subthalamic nucleus or the globus pallidus interna. These small structures are located about eight centimeters beneath the surface of the frontal cortex in the brain.
