Excellence in Education

Fourth Annual Celebration

Celebrating Workforce and Career Development in Henrico County

Thursday, April 11, 2024   6 - 8:30pm

Science Museum of Virginia

The Excellence in Education Celebration will be like nothing you’ve ever experienced before! On April 11, 2024, the Henrico Education Foundation invites you to attend an interactive evening at the Science Museum of Virginia where you will get to experience some of the opportunities made available in Henrico classrooms each day, from innovative classroom projects like conquering the Rubiks Cube and practicing simple coding to a hands-on exploration of our Workforce and Career Development Programs.

Join us for networking, craft cocktails, small plates, and the opportunity to engage with our students and educators and see first-hand, what makes Henrico County Public Schools special in its preparation of #LifeReady students to be the workforce for the future. Don’t miss out on this chance to participate in a real-time conversation about workforce development and how we can work together to provide creative solutions to solve the current crisis.

A brief, but spectacular presentation will take place at approximately 7:15 pm where you will be given the unique chance to financially support this work through a variety of fund-a-cause components. We’ve come far, but there is still much to be done to help students K-12 discover their passion and create pathways to the workforce.
