Awards

WELV Awards

WELV’s Award Program recognizes distinctive achievements by women leaders in Virginia public education. And our broad community of WELV supporters plays a crucial role in helping us to select deserving winners. Acting on nominations from the community, the WELV Board of Directors examines the full range of a potential winner’s accomplishments as they relate to and reflect the purpose of each award. Winners are celebrated at our Annual Conference in March.
