Assistance League of Northern Virginia is one of three selected winners of the 2018 Business Partnership of the Year award from SPARK (Supporting Partnerships & Resources for Kids), which is the Education Foundation of Prince William County Schools.
To celebrate this honor,three members of the chapter were invited to attend the Superintendent’s Business Breakfast on 23 October. Dr. Steven Walts, Superintendent of Schools, spoke to an illustrious group of about 150, including elected officials, representatives from SPARK, the School Board, community business partners, and the SPARK Innovative Grant winners, who propose creative ways to enhance education. As part of the program, a video was shown of representatives from each organization describing their services to the community.
We sincerely thank Lynn Barron, VP of Philanthropy, for her stellar presentation. The table decorations were art projects from three schools, and performing for our entertainment was the Battlefield High School String ensemble. It was a lovely occasion and such a privilege for Assistance League Northern Virginia to be a recipient of this prestigious award.
