Chesterfield County School Board, Midlothian Rotary recognize Students of the Year

Posted on

Wonderful worker.  Knowledgeable. Impressed with their service to the school and community.  Kind. Happy. Eager to help.

These are the some of the descriptions of Chesterfield County Public Schools’ 2018 Students of the Year, who were recognized April 26 during a special celebration sponsored by the Midlothian Rotary Club. The annual event honors two students from every Chesterfield County school for demonstrating citizenship and the school division’s core values of respect, responsibility, honesty and accountability.

“What stands out in selecting students for this honor is not just the fact that they are all great students, but more importantly, that they demonstrate these core values every day,” School Board Chair John Erbach said. “These core values form the foundation of other important character traits, such as integrity, self-discipline, diligence, trust, commitment, courage, compassion and loyalty. Young people who incorporate these values into their lives are better prepared to succeed academically and become more productive citizens who will make a difference in our community.”

Added Superintendent Dr. James Lane, “Chesterfield County Public Schools appreciate the long-standing partnership with the Midlothian Rotary Club to celebrate the good choices these students are making in their lives and to honor their commitment to their values and citizenship. We applaud these students for being recognized tonight with this special honor, and we know they are leading by example and demonstrating to their classmates how to achieve excellence.”
