Every year, community members spend countless hours volunteering in Arlington Schools, supporting students and staff. The Arlington School Board recognizes this commitment and appreciates the efforts of all of our volunteers.
In 1975, the Board established the Honored Citizen Award to recognize special volunteers who have made extraordinary contributions to Arlington Public Schools. These dedicated individuals participate in a wide variety of school activities, demonstrating a sustained commitment to APS of at least five years.
For 2018, the School Board has named 13 outstanding volunteers as Honored Citizens. The Board will celebrate these individuals at a special event on May 31 at the Syphax Education Center, 2110 Washington Blvd, 2nd floor. A reception will be held at 5:30 p.m. followed by a recognition ceremony at 6 p.m.
