News2024 Newsletter 4 – From the President’s Desk

As the days lengthen and spring blooms forth, let’s take a moment to celebrate our achievements and gear up for the exciting adventures ahead!

Recently, the VSBA shined a spotlight on the incredible accomplishments of school divisions across the Commonwealth through the Annual Showcases for Success Directory and a special newsletter released at the end of April each year. Within the directory we got a glimpse into the amazing work of 43 school divisions, showcasing 92 programs. If you haven’t checked them out yet, now’s the perfect time to dive in and get inspired! Click here to view the full directory!

And guess what? May 31 brings us the highly anticipated VSBA School Law Conference. This year, we’re shaking things up with a new location at the Richmond Marriott Short Pump. Get ready to gain valuable knowledge and insights that are crucial for effective governance.

But wait, there’s more excitement on the horizon! Mark your calendars for the Conference on Education happening on July 23. It’s a fantastic opportunity for us to come together, share ideas, and bring fresh perspectives back to our own school divisions. Let’s seize this chance to exchange ideas, spark innovation, and pave the way for educational excellence.

In closing, I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you for your dedication, compassion, and unwavering commitment to our mission of creating a brighter future for all students. Your hard work and passion are truly inspiring, and I’m grateful to be on this journey with you.

Warm regards,

Dr. Cardell Patillo, Jr.
VSBA President
