Superintendent of Lynchburg City Schools, Dr. Paul McKendrick, made a well deserved delivery to Bedford Hills Elementary school in March – a banner from the Governor’s office.
Bedford Hills Elementary School has earned the 2010 Governor’s Award for Educational Excellence, the highest honor under the Virginia Index of Performance (VIP). To qualify for the Governor’s Award for Educational Excellence, Bedford Hills met all state and federal achievement benchmarks for two consecutive years and achieved applicable excellence goals for elementary reading and participation in the Virginia Preschool Initiative. The school also won bonus points on the Governor’s Nutrition and Physical Activity Scorecard. One hundred and fifty-three Virginia schools earned this award. Congratulations go out to Principal Robert Quel, teachers, staff, and students at Bedford Hills. The banner will now proudly hang in the school.
