“She is a leader of others by example,” read Superintendent Gena Keller from Staton’s nomination. “She serves as case manager for the gifted program and ensures gifted students in her class are being challenged… She provides positive insight, wisdom and problem-solving alongside her peers and administration… She is an asset to the entire school community yet she shies away from wanting to be recognized, but is most deserving of this nomination.”
“Thank you for the honor and the recognition. It is a joy to work in Fluvanna,” said Staton as she accepted her award.
The Board also recognized teachers of the year from each school in the county:
• West Central Primary School – Michelle Rafaly
• Central Elementary School – Beverly Proffitt
• Carysbrook Elementary School – Julia Hogue
• Fluvanna Middle School – Virginia Staton
• Fluvanna County High School – Elena Calhoun

Tristana Treadway. Photo by Christina Dimeo GusemanSurrounded by about 15 supporters, Tristana Treadway announced Friday (May 15) that she is running for Fluvanna County clerk of circuit court.
“I commit to providing stellar and efficient customer service to the citizens of Fluvanna County and to providing a professional clerk’s office for the employees as well as the citizens utilizing the office’s services,” Treadway, 40, said to the gathering.
Specifically, Treadway wants to create an internet presence for the clerk’s office so that information, forms, and services can be accessed online. “There are several specific items that I would like to work with the staff on improving, such as the current procedure of indexing files which includes using a typewriter,” she said.
If elected, Treadway would encourage her staff to use the career development program of the Virginia Court Clerks’ Association, which she said would ensure “uniform professional recognition with other constitutional offices.” In addition, it could make possible pay increases for the staff from the Virginia Compensation Board. “As a result of this, the citizens will benefit by having the most knowledgeable, skilled, and professional deputy clerks,” she said.
