Henrico School Board renames Godwin specialty center for late teacher

The Henrico School Board voted Thursday to rename Mills Godwin High School’s specialty center for a beloved teacher and former center director who died in June – the day after school ended – in a car accident not far from the school. The Center for Medical Sciences now will be known as the Todd Allen Phillips Center for Medical Sciences. The board took the action at its monthly meeting.

Phillips was a longtime teacher, coach and center director at Godwin. Last year, he led the center’s transition to a focus on medical sciences from its initial emphasis on math, science and technology.
