Hermitage H.S. teacher to be awarded new car on Nov. 18

A teacher at Hermitage High School will receive a free car for one year due to a partnership Hermitage formed last year with West Broad Audi and Volkswagon. The partnership, known as the “Going the Extra Mile Campaign,” served as an incentive for teachers to tutor and remediate their students to ensure student success on the End of the Course SOL. The school administration and West Broad Audi and Volkswagon will lease a 2012 Volkswagon Jetta to the deserving teacher from the department with the highest passing SOL scores. The winning teacher will be announced on Friday, Nov. 18 at 7:30 p.m. during the school’s football game.
