YAY DWIGHT VANROSSUM! Dwight VanRossum, principal of Chamberlayne Elementary School, is one of today’s “Yay of the Day” honorees. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored him recently at Chamberlayne.

YAYWORTHY— Nominator Maggie Harington said: “He shows kindness, flexibility and trust in his teachers! As a new teacher to the county I have seen such a positive work environment. He shows trust and pride in his employees and students. I have felt welcomed to Henrico in such a wonderful way and I am happy to be in Henrico County, especially this year!”

Liz Fagan said: “He is always so involved with the children, parents and staff. Today, he was my second-graders’ substitute teacher! Seeing him “step down” from being the principal today and “step up” to teaching our students is awesome. I can truly feel the love he has for his Chamberlayne families and staff.”

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