APS Honored Citizens

 The Arlington School Board is now accepting nominations for the 2019 Honored Citizens!

One of the APSGroup Picture Strategic Plan goals is to “develop and support strong connections among schools, families, and the community to broaden opportunities for student learning, development, and growth.” We are fortunate that many community members support this goal by donating their time to help our students receive the best education possible. These dedicated volunteers contribute in many capacities throughout our schools, from serving as a member or officer in a PTA, to participating on an advisory group, to reading to students. Many volunteers return year after year, and their contributions are greatly appreciated. The 2018 Honored Citizens are pictured above.

In 1975, the Arlington School Board established the Honored Citizen Award to recognize volunteers who have made extraordinary contributions to our schools. Honored Citizens have demonstrated a sustained commitment of at least five years to Arlington Public Schools. These dedicated individuals have donated significant time and energy to a broad range of volunteer activities throughout the school community. Each year the School Board celebrates these outstanding community members with a reception and a recognition ceremony.  This year the ceremony will be as part of a Board meeting on Thursday, May 23, 2019 in the School Board Room, Syphax Education Center 2nd floor, 2110 Washington Blvd., Arlington, VA 22204.

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2019 Honored Citizens award. The School Board welcomes nominations from all members of the community.  If you know of someone who meets the criteria of Honored Citizen, please consider nominating them for this award. Please remember, though, employees of Arlington Public Schools, previous honorees, and candidates for public office are ineligible.
