The REB Awards for Distinguished Educational Leadership provide a tangible, public way to recognize an outstanding principal at an area school, and it’s time once again to submit your nominations. 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. Eligible are principals from public schools in Henrico, Chesterfield and Hanover counties and the city of Richmond. Nominees should have served in their current positions for at least three years.
Nominations are being accepted from students, parents, colleagues, school personnel and administrators, and the community at large. They should include a completed nomination form, downloaded from the foundation’s website and 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 mailed or hand-delivered, and must be received by 5:00 PM November 8th. Emailed or faxed nominations are not accepted.
