• The 14 Henry County teachers who have achieved the highest certification possible — certification by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. Velaine Bonebright, Charles Byrd, Dorothy M. Carter, Debra M. Chaney, Kim Clark, Kim Engel, Rebekah Carter Flora, Beth Hering, Kathryn C. Ingram, Willie Martin, Jodie K. Rakes, Hannah L. Sullivan, Sheana Wingfield and Jessica Witcher completed the rigorous process and were honored by the county schools at a banquet last week. They are role models for their students, showing them that learning never ends as they strive to be the best teachers possible.

• Darius R. Simington and the Martinsville and Henry County National Society for Black Engineers Jr. Chapter. The national society named Simington its 2013 Pre-College Initiative Student of the Year, and the local chapter is its recipient of the 2013 Pre-College Initiative Program of the Year Award. These honors reflect the growth in and quality of the local NSBE chapter, which was founded by Helen Howell in 1997 and has 150 members. The chapter’s focus is to motivate students to improve their grade point averages and take more challenging courses. All of its members have graduated from high school and either attended college or joined the military.

• The “Streamside Trees in the Classroom” program sponsored by the Dan River Basin Association with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Last week, Magna Vista High School AP Biology students and Future Farmers of America members planted 55 Black Willow trees along the stream bank near Bowen’s Creek at Philpott Lake through the streamside program. The trees help mitigate pollution and erosion, and the students gain knowledge through the hands-on project.
