Central High School hosted Opening Convocation for Lunenburg County Public Schools with about 250 faculty, staff, retirees and guests in attendance. At this formal opening, faculty and staff gathered as a full community. The Reverend Eduardo Carrillo, Minister at Antioch United Methodist gave the Invocation and made a few remarks. The Rev. Carrillo mentioned many teachers who had impacted his life and challenged teachers to have a “passion” for what they do.

The keynote address was delivered by Megan Clark, Commonwealth’s Attorney in Prince Edward County.

Clark started her remarks with “Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!” to our teachers and staff. She spoke of teachers who had made a difference in her life and also challenged the community to get involved and be accountable as well in the education of our students. Clark pointed out that we must always have a child-centered approach to everything we do. She noted the importance of always promoting a united message among teachers and administration when dealing with our children. In closing she also challenged teachers to have a passion for what they do and not to take their career choice lightly.

Staff and attendees were entered into a drawing for door prizes donated by individuals and local businesses. A lunch was enjoyed by all and was a collaborative effort on behalf of the School Board and cafeteria staff.
