In recognition of “VSBA Take Your Legislator to School Month,” Cumberland County Public Schools invited Delegate Tommy Wright to visit Cumberland Elementary School (CES) and to have lunch in the cafeteria. Delegate Wright—who represents the counties of Amelia, Cumberland, Lunenburg (part), Mecklenburg, and Nottoway—visited classrooms and interacted with students. He gave an impromptu lesson to the students in Mrs. Layne’s third grade class on how government operates. During lunch in the CES cafeteria, he discussed educational issues currently being debated in the General Assembly.
Ms. Kathryn Garrett (Assistant Principal), Mrs. Ginny Gills (Principal), Delegate Tommy Wright, and Dr. Chip Jones (Assistant Superintendent) get ready to tour the elementary school before having lunch in the cafeteria.
