As part of “Take Your Legislator to School Month,” Senator Frank Ruff and Delegate Tommy Wright visited each school in Lunenburg on Friday, Nov. 30. Also joining the tour was Board of Supervisors Member Mike Hankins and County Administrator Tracy Gee.

The tour started at Central High School. The group learned about different aspects of the Career and Technical Education area including the Co-op/Marketing program and a project in the wood shop area in which students have built carts to house electronic devices, saving the school system money in the technology area.

At Lunenburg Middle School, the delegation visited other career and technical classes such as computer science, art, agriculture and band. The band class treated the group to a short rendition of “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.”

At Victoria Elementary various student groups and individual students gave presentations ranging from Eastern Woodland Indians to a science presentation on completing circuits. At Kenbridge Elementary several third graders presented their projects and one of the Pre-K classes made lemonade from scratch for the visitors.

Legislators were able to see what our students are learning at all levels. School representatives were able to discuss areas where we have been innovative and conservative, such as making our own technology carts, but also communicate areas of need, particularly in regard to mental health services for students. Lunenburg County Public Schools sincerely appreciates Senator Ruff’s and Delegate Wright’s support in the area of education.
