McGee named new director of Maggie Walker Governor’s School
The Regional School Board of the Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School for Government and International Studies recently appointed Jeffrey W. McGee as the school’s new director.
McGee comes to Maggie Walker from Pyeongtaek City, South Korea, where he has served since 2010 as the principal of Osan Middle School, a member of the Department of Defense Dependents Schools (DoDDS) network. Prior to working in Korea, McGee served as the principal of three middle schools in Chesterfield County: Manchester, Matoaca and Salem. Both Manchester and Matoaca included center-based gifted programs. He also has administrative experience in Henrico high schools, including Highland Springs and Freeman.
A former member of the U.S. Army, where he was trained as a linguist in Arabic and Urdu, McGee has a masters of education from VCU and a bachelor of science in education from Virginia Tech.
McGee and his family will return to Richmond this summer and will begin as director of MLWGS in August.
Canoeing and kayaking enthusiasts soon will have a new access point to the Chickahominy River. VDOT, the James River Association and Henrico County Parks and Recreation are teaming up to establish a new site in Eastern Henrico.
The James River Association negotiated the deal with VDOT to procure official access to the area located just east of I-295 on North Airport Road in Sandston. The site includes a park-and-ride commuter lot bordering the Chickahominy River and has been an unofficial launch site used by paddlers for years. > Read more.
