College president commends local educators

Editor:

As president of Camp Community College and a professional educator for the past 22 years, I am painfully aware of the challenges facing our schools during these challenging times. Our local school systems have been forced to implement new pedagogical theories and innovations overnight to ensure students continue to receive the best instruction and support possible. I would like to commend all of the superintendents, administrators, teachers and support staff who have gone the extra mile. They are certainly worthy of our respect and admiration.

As the parent of two students attending schools in Isle of Wight County, I would specifically like to thank superintendent of schools Dr. Jim Thornton and his entire system staff for their outstanding response to this difficult situation. Our children continue to receive an excellent education, and as parents we have been routinely informed of new policies and procedures. I am confident that, even as the future remains uncertain, under Dr. Thornton’s leadership Isle of Wight’s school system will continue to thrive.

To all working on the front lines in public education, I extend my gratitude for a job well done.
