Byrd M.S. principal wins R.E.B. Award

Byrd Middle School Principal Sharon Pope recently won the R.E.B. Award for Distinguished Educational Leadership. Jodie Brinkman, the principal at Echo Lake Elementary, was the runner-up.

“I know the high caliber of leaders who have earned this recognition, and to be considered in that league is truly an honor,” Pope said.

The R.E.B. Awards for Distinguished Leadership seek to recognize principals who go beyond the day-to-day demands of their position to create an exceptional educational environment. Four principals will be publicly recognized, one in each school district of the metropolitan area (i.e. the counties of Chesterfield, Hanover, Henrico and the City of Richmond).

Each award will consist of a $7,500 cash grant to the principal and an additional $7,500 for school projects chosen by the principal. Principals who win this award are those who promote excellence, demonstrate leadership, inspire their students, and are advocates for their school and their faculty. They encourage team spirit and foster a connection and cooperation between their school and their community.
