Do you know of a deserving school principal who you’d like to see publicly recognized for going above and beyond?
Do you know a principal doing outstanding things at their school? The REB Awards for Distinguished Educational Leadership provide a tangible, public way to recognize an outstanding principal at a Henrico County school. The Community Foundation’s yearly awards identify, recognize and support leadership excellence in the Richmond area.
Honorees receive an unrestricted $7,500 cash grant, and $7,500 to be used for school initiatives. Principals from public schools in Henrico, Chesterfield and Hanover counties and the city of Richmond are eligible. Nominees should have served in their current positions for at least three years.
The Community Foundation invites nominations from students, parents, colleagues, school personnel and administrators and the community at large. Nominations should take the form of a one- to two-page typeset letter describing the nominee’s distinguished educational leadership. It can be accompanied by up to three one-page letters of support. Principals may not nominate themselves.
Nominations must be received by 5:00 PM on Monday, November 16th. Emailed or faxed nominations are not accepted.
You can mail your nomination to:
