Providence Middle was named the 2019 MEGA Mentors School of the Year during a ceremony March 3 where the school received a $5,000 award.
MEGA Mentors Greg Cummings, Gwen Epps and Thomas Manley presented the award to the school for supporting and exemplifying the four core MEGA Mentors values of respect, responsibility, effort and achievement.
Providence Principal Amanda Voekler, Assistant Principal Sandra Judge-Harden and the entire school staff attended the ceremony. Chesterfield County Public Schools Superintendent Merv Daugherty was also present.
“The relationships that MEGA Mentors develop with our students help to create a more safe and nurturing learning environment,” said Daugherty. “Mentoring is a powerful opportunity that enriches the lives of all involved, and partnerships like this are critical to the success of our schools.”
Over the last decade, MEGA Mentors has donated over $50,000 for School of the Year STEM grants to help thousands of students across Chesterfield County meet their academic and social goals.
