YAY JOHN CARROLL! John Carroll, HCPS’ student activities specialist, is today’s “Yay of the Day” winner. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored John recently at HCPS Central Office.

YAYWORTHY— Nominator Rob Welsh, director of student activities at Henrico HS, said: “John spearheaded the process which allowed each of HCPS’ nine high schools to begin out-of-season conditioning for their student athletes, with the hope of beginning VHSL competition in December following a well-designed “HCPS Return to Activity” guide. He makes a positive impact at each meeting of HCPS’ directors of student activities. He facilitates critical thinking and out-of-the-box problem-solving, which serves all of HCPS’ students — both athletes and student club members — so they can participate with COVID-19 mitigation strategies in place, ensuring their physical and mental well-being.”

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