Two Bedford County schools were among the 153 Virginia public schools that earned the 2010 Governor’s Award for Educational Excellence.
Both Otter River and Forest elementary schools received the honor. The award is the highest honor under the Virginia Index of Performance incentive program created by the Board of Education in 2007.
“It means a great deal to all of us,” noted Otter River Elementary Principal Georgia Hairston. “We’re very excited about achieving the award, once again.”
