Henrico’s Top Teachers – 2013

Our third annual ‘Henrico’s Top Teachers’ section profiles 20 outstanding educators in Henrico County.

Readers – including students, parents, grandparents and colleagues – submitted nearly 200 teacher nominations last fall, and our staff faced the difficult task of paring those nominees to just 20.

Each of these teachers has, in his or her own unique way, touched hundreds of lives and helped mold the future of Henrico County. We are proud to tell their stories in this special section.

We salute each one – and the many other deserving teachers who give selflessly each day inside – and outside – their classrooms.

Virginia schools must soon test for lead in water

With the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, safe drinking water is a high priority nationwide, especially for children. Beginning July 1, schools in Virginia will be required to test their potable water for lead.

Senate Bill 1359, which Gov. Terry McAuliffe signed into law on March 20, seeks to ensure that local school boards test the drinking water in schools and that it meets federal guidelines. The Food and Drug Administration recommends that the level of lead not exceed 15 parts per billion. > Read more.
