Henrico County Public Schools is updating its strategic plan to guide the school division for the next several years. All community stakeholders, including students, families, employees and interested citizens are invited to participate. 

Nov. 29: Come laugh, be inspired and help chart Henrico Schools’ future

On Nov. 29 another prominent speaker will appear as part of Henrico Schools’ planning process. Adolph Brown III wows audiences with his engaging personality and use of humor. Brown will talk about the HCPS cornerstones, “Closing Gaps” and “Relationships.” The speech is being made possible by funding from the Henrico Education Foundation. Brown is a nationally recognized speaker and teacher who uses his varied life experiences to connect audiences to evidence-based material. He tailors his talks to each audience. Brown was the first member of his family to graduate from high school, and later earned a master’s from the College of William and Mary and doctorate from the Virginia Consortium for Professional Psychology.
