Four area principals receive professional development awards

Four area principals awarded professional development awards

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 are 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 consists of a $7,500 cash grant to the principal and an additional $7,500 for school projects chosen by the principal.

Kenneth Butta

Carver College and Career Academy — Chesterfield
Dr. Butta will implement AMPED (Algebra 1 in Manufacturing Processes, Entrepreneurship and Design), which teaches math through real world, project based lessons, labs, and activities. AMPED students will produce a set of school-sanctioned clothing that Academy students can purchase.

Mark Beckett

Chickahominy Middle School — Hanover
Mr. Beckett will use his REB Award to bring more opportunities for physical activity and movement to his school, including the development of an outdoor fitness area that can be used by both the school and surrounding community.

Arthur Raymond

Fairfield Middle School — Henrico
Mr. Raymond will implement the Mind Up curriculum, a mindfulness training initiative that helps students reduce stress and anxiety, handle conflict, manage emotions and develop greater empathy toward others.

Daisy Greene

J.L. Francis Elementary School — Richmond
Ms. Greene will use her REB Award to transform the large hallway that connects all of J.L. Francis' classrooms. The hallway will become a teaching opportunity, using artwork and materials to support academic subjects.
