Lynchburg City School’s Partners in Education (PIE) got a chance to see how teaming up has made a difference in the lives of students in our community.
At the 22nd Annual PIE Recognition Program at Lynchburg College, pictures and videos were shown to highlight how area businesses, organizations and institutions have worked together to help Lynchburg City School students succeed.
The Partners in Education program is a joint venture between the Lynchburg City Schools and the Lynchburg Regional Chamber of Commerce. The program is designed to create linkages between the school system and area businesses, organizations and institutions. To date, 260 partnerships have been created.
This year, first-year partners received certificates, and fifth-, tenth- and twentieth-year partners got special recognition as well.
