Henrico’s Top Teachers – 2012

Profiles of 20 teachers who make a difference
Teachers do not seek out publicity or acclaim for what they do, but we believe they deserve to be recognized for their efforts. In our second annual ‘Henrico’s Top Teachers’ issue, we tell the stories of 20 outstanding Henrico County teachers.

This year’s class includes teachers from throughout Henrico County who teach grade levels from preschool through high school and GED. They were nominated – along with more than 200 others – by readers during the month of November.

The volume of nominations received for this section – more than double the number received for last year’s inaugural issue – was overwhelming. Nominations came from parents, grandparents, colleagues, administrators – even students and former students. Paring the number of candidates to just 20 was no easy task.

We’re proud to present profiles of these teachers, who were selected for inclusion in this issue based on their professional successes and their personal touches. Each one has, in his or her own unique way, touched hundreds of lives and helped mold the future of Henrico County.

The Citizen and Henrico Education Foundation will honor the group at a celebration banquet Feb. 22 at the Doubletree Hotel Richmond Airport. Tickets are $50 apiece and may be ordered by calling (804) 262-1700 or e-mailing .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Anthem LemonAid registration opens


Every week, another child is diagnosed with cancer in Central Virginia. Last summer, six-year-old Caroline Morris was one of them.

Diagnosed in June 2015 with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, the most common type of childhood cancer, Morris has been receiving treatment at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU (CHoR) ever since.

“It’s not my hair that makes my beauty,” said Morris, who lost her hair as a chemotherapy side effect, “it’s my heart.” > Read more.
