Congratulations to T. Eggleston, Victoria Elementary School 4th Grader, who was named Lunenburg County Chamber of Commerce Student of the Quarter for the 3rd Quarter of 2015-2016. Eggleston received the award at the Chamber’s meeting on April 28, 2016 at Mildred’s Meals in Kenbridge.
Eggleston was one of two winners of The Farmville Herald’s Junior Globetrotter contest. In order to enter the contest, Eggleston had to write an essay explaining why he wanted to be a Junior Globetrotter. He got to sit on the bench with the Harlem Globetrotters on Wednesday, February 24 during their performance at Longwood University, and was featured on the front page of the KV Dispatch March 2, 2016 issue. Eggleston has also recently been a featured weather reporter on Channel 8.
Eggleston is quite an ambitious young man. He continues to go above and beyond in everything he pursues. He does well academically and is currently excelling on the baseball field.

Amy McClure Selected as the First Virginia Lottery Super Teacher of 2016
McClure is a Lunenburg County School Board Member and Instructor at The Governor's School
of Southside Virginia
There are some amazing teachers out there – SuperTeachers, in fact, and many of them are right here in Virginia. Amy McClure is one of those teachers, and that’s why she was selected to receive the 2016 Virginia Lottery Super Teacheraward.
Mrs. McClure received the award today in a surprise presentation at The Governor’s School of Southside Virginia in front of students, faculty and special guests. The award, sponsored by the Virginia Lottery, the Virginia PTA and Virginia-based The Supply Room Companies, consists of a $2,000 cash prize and an additional $2,000 classroom credit from The Supply Room Companies.
This is the ninth year for the Virginia Lottery Super Teacher awards, which honor outstanding K-12 public school educators. Each year, the Lottery asks for nominations from all across the state, and this year, received nearly 800 total. From there, a panel of judges selects eight teachers – one from each geographic region across the state – to win. Amy McClure is the first educator to receive the Super Teacher Award for 2016. Seven more surprise presentations will occur this spring.
“Calculus and pre-calculus are tough subjects for our students,” points out nominator and colleague Dr. Joyce Hurt. “While Mrs. McClure is an excellent teacher, she also uses every technological advancement available to help her students learn. For example, she uses SmartBoard, SmartNotebook, Google Docs, Blackboard, Remind 101, Apple TV, iPads, Turning Point Clickers, document cameras, QR Codes, Skype, Green Screen Technology, and Google Handouts to enhance her students' learning opportunities. She is very cognizant of the diversity of learning styles, and she strives to accommodate them. She also incorporates projects and hands-on experiments to make her lessons more interesting.”
The 2016 Virginia Lottery Super Teachers were selected by a panel of distinguished educators and community leaders, including:
Dr. Jo Lynne DeMary, former State Superintendent for Public Instruction
Dr. Martha Ross, professor emerita, JMU
The Honorable James W. Dyke, former Virginia Secretary of Education
Jane Brooks, President of the Virginia PTA
Michael Salvatierra, 2014 Super Teacher Award Recipient, Venable Elementary School in Charlottesville
The judges selected the eight winners based on the strength of the nominations and educators’ qualities as exemplified by the nominators. Each nomination includes answers to four questions addressing everything from the teacher’s passion for and commitment to the profession, to innovation and creativity in the classroom, to how the teacher involves the students’ parents.
“We’re game for education, and these awards are a great way for the Lottery to demonstrate that,” said Virginia Lottery Executive Director Paula Otto. “We are committed to supporting Virginia’s public schools, and that includes recognizing outstanding Super Teachers who are making such a difference in the education of Virginia’s youth and, indeed, our future leaders.”

The Portable Chargers Continue to Perform Well in their First Year of Competition
The Portable Chargers continue to do well in competition. This past weekend, they traveled to Hampton Roads, and out of 35 teams they ended up ranking 22nd. They also formed a 3 team alliance they competed and ended up placing 2nd. Coach Mark Bailey said, "I don't think I have ever been as proud of a team. It was great to see kids learn how to not only do simple things, but to learn life skills, people skills, and very complex 'figure it out and fix it now' skills."
With a couple of statewide events to go, there is a possibility that the team might qualify for the district championship. They take 55 teams for the district competition, and currently the Portable Chargers are ranked 37 out of 200 teams. Keep in mind also that this is their first year of competition. This fact makes these accomplishments even more outstanding! (Competition photo credit - D. Minnix)
Jali-D, The DrumTalker, Visits Central High School
On Friday, March 25, 2016, Jali-D, the Drum Talker, performed at Central High School for students, staff, and a few visitors. He is a skilled percussionist and hip hop lyricist who turns his talents into “rappercussion”. His rhymes concentrated on math,science, reading as well as the importance of academic success and the value of achievement.
His interaction with the students kept them spelled bound and involved. If students were able to answer his questions about his rhyme or his drum, they were called down to the floor to play the drum as he rhymed.
Students were also able to complete several rhymes that he told to them so that he could determine if they were paying attention, and to his surprise they were. He often complimented the students for their participation and attentiveness. Students were able to answer him with great enthusiasm.
This was a great program that demonstrated that learning can be made fun with music and rhyme. A huge thank you goes to Mr. Reginald Davis for arranging this performance!
Faculty and staff participated in a door decorating contest at both schools as well.

Charger Courtyard Campaign is Underway
Plans are underway to improve and expand the current Central High School patio, an area that is enjoyed regularly by students, staff, and community members. This newly renovated area will be called, "The Charger Courtyard." The Charger Courtyard Campaign is being spearheaded by Assistant Principal Natalie Coronas.
The project includes purchasing shade sails for the current patio, building additional picnic tables, and creating a center courtyard off of the patio. A gazebo will be built by carpentry students and a brick walkway will be made with engraved, memorial/honorary bricks purchased to help fund the project.
The project will cost approximately $15,000 to complete, and the memorial/honorary bricks may be purchased for $50. If you are interested in purchasing a brick, click here for an order form. Your donations are greatly appreciated. As funds come in from these donations, we will be able to purchase materials and move forward with our projects. The laying of the bricks will be one of the final items to be done in this process.
Other fundraiser's are being held as well. You may reach Mrs. Coronas at 434-696-2137 for more information about this project.
