YAY ALICIA BOBCOMBE-RING! Alicia Bobcombe-Ring of HCPS’ PACE program (Program for Academic and Career Empowerment) is today’s “Yay of the Day” honoree. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored Alicia recently at the Campus of Virginia Randolph.

YAYWORTHY— Nominator Kristin Larsen said: “She calls our children and those at AVR on a regular basis to make sure they are on task, okay, and schedules work sessions for students who are struggling for both schools. When she encourages all of her staff at PACE every single morning with a “happy gram” to get us focused and ready to impact student lives. She’s a great administrator because she makes her teacher great AND she brings out the best in students.”

Kirsten Morvan said: “Ms. Bobcombe-Ring goes above and beyond for any and all students. Once they enter the PACE program, they become one of her kids. She becomes a strong female role model for the students, pushing them to strive and be their best with some tough love, but very strong compassion. Virtual learning didn’t changed a thing, with Ms. Bobcombe-Ring on the phone and in contact with students and parents on a daily basis. She checks in on their classes and reaches out to provide families support during this challenging time. She makes a difference every day in our students’ lives. Once a PACE kid, always a PACE kid, even once they leave. Ms. Bobcombe-Ring stays in contact with all of her students, giving them encouragement and drive during their high school years. There isn’t just one example because it happens daily.”

Thank you for all you do, Alicia, to make a positive difference and move HCPS forward!
