We have an outstanding team in Goochland County Public Schools, and each year our staff takes a moment to recognize their peers for their exceptional performance.

Normally we would gather with our recognized staff members and their families to hold our annual “Evening of Excellence”.  In the present circumstances we worked to still recognize those team members, just a little differently for 2020.

This morning we posted a video that highlights our employee, team, volunteer, rookies, and school teachers of the year that you can see here.   Congratulations to:

  • Mr. Frank Eldridge, Lead Custodian, Byrd Elementary-Employee of the Year
  • Ms. Mary Beth Geiger, Goochland Elementary-Volunteer of the Year
  • Ms. Mary Frances Roll, Randolph Elementary-Elementary Rookie of the Year
  • Ms. Alex Gerkin, Goochland High-Secondary Rookie of the Year
  • GCPS Food Service Team-Team of the Year

Our school level teachers of the year for 2020 are:

  • Ms. Diane O’Connell, Byrd Elementary
  • Ms. Caroline Van Ness, Goochland Elementary
  • Ms. Whitney Neiditch, Randolph Elementary
  • Ms. Alexis Lewis, Goochland Middle
  • Ms. Anne Marie Hudak, Goochland High

This afternoon, Dr. Raley was joined by Dr. Geyer, Dr. Armstrong, and Dr. Hendron to surprise our 2020 Goochland County Public Schools Teacher of the Year, Ms. Anne Marie Hudak, at her home.  You can see that video here.  Ms. Hudak will move on to compete for the Mary Bicouvaris Virginia Teacher of the Year.

Congratulations to our entire team for their continued dedication to our students and our community.
