Cumberland Schools Announces Media Honor Roll
Each year the Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA) recognizes members of the local media who have demonstrated the ongoing responsible and exemplary nature of reporting on a community’s public schools. The Cumberland County School Board passed a resolution at the August meeting nominating Laura McFarland, from Cumberland Today, to be included on Media Honor Roll. Ms. McFarland was subsequently added to the Media Honor Roll, which appeared in Issue 7 of the 2017 VSBA Newsletter. In addition, Ms. McFarland was recognized at the September meeting of the School Board for achieving this honor. School Board Clerk Liz Jamerson noted that the school division appreciated Ms. McFarland’s fair and balanced reporting and commended her for her dedication in reporting the Cumberland news.
