We have Governor Terry McAuliffe of Virginia delving into the matter of the Virginia Index of Performance Awards & handing them out, while also being encouraging & giving a confidence boost publicly to the winners so they continue their efforts. An Editor's Note: This is sort of like the Governor General's Awards (such as the Governor General's Academic Medal For Scholastic Excellence) & The Order Of Canada Medals given out here in The Dominion Of Canada at the residence of The Governor General, which is Rideau Hall. These medals have always been handed out by Canada's Governor General of the day, who is our constitutional "representative of Crown matters" (acting on behalf Her Majesty The Queen who is "head of state") & not the Prime Minister. Whereas Virginian students & other Americans/Canadians who read this post must be reminded that their President is both "head of state & government." Rideau Hall is also where the cabinet of whomever forms the next Her Majesty's Government after our current Federal Election is sworn in.
"These schools & divisions are laboratories for innovation that are preparing young Virginians to compete & succeed in a new Virginia economy. I congratulate the students, teachers, principals, & communities whose efforts have turned their schools into leaders in training the workforce of the future."
