To All Who Serve in Salem City Schools,

As I progress through the seasons of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year celebrated in my family’s traditions, I wish very much for each of you to know how truly thankful I am for all who serve in Salem City Schools.

Ending the year with another Top 10 ranking of Virginia’s 132 School Divisions, back-to-back State Championships in Football, and a host of other accolades available on the SCS Facebook Page, that are external evidence of your commitment to excellence, I want to wish you all well with my own personal evidence.

As a citizen of Salem, as an educator whose entire career has been in this remarkable school division, and as a husband and father to three of young lives entrusted to your care…bless you and thank you all!

As you progress through the seasons of your family’s traditions, I hope that you have an enjoyable holiday. Please celebrate, rest, and reflect on the fact that you help make this City and this School Division truly special places to live, work, and raise families!
