The Chesterfield County School Board, and Superintendent Marcus Newsome, hosted a yearly recognition breakfast March 28 for businesses and community organizations, who volunteer in support of the public school system.
Newsome kicked off the breakfast by thanking all those who donate and support Chesterfield County Public Schools. His remarks echoed a theme woven throughout the event -- volunteers play a vital role in the academic and social success of students. He said while CCPS appreciates all the donations they receive, the thing that makes the most impact for students is the time contributed to helping them reach their potential.
During the event, CCPS recognized those volunteers that the schools identified as their key partners. Volunteers being honored included businesses, PTA leaders, churches and other community organizations throughout the county. More than 300 attended the annual event.
