As Interim Superintendent Chuck Winkler introduced a presentation to the Fluvanna School Board on Friday (Jan. 20), he revealed he would like for his new position to become permanent.

“If I’m lucky enough to remove the interim before my name, I wouldn’t change a thing with that,” Winkler said, referring to the motto “Dare to imagine…engaged, inspired learning every day!”

Board Chair Carol Carr (Rivanna) said the Board began the process of finding the next superintendent by asking the public to fill out a survey. The first public hearing on the matter is scheduled for Feb. 1 at 7 p.m.

Tom GarrettNewly-elected U.S. Rep. Tom Garrett (R-Buckingham) visited Fluvanna County High School on Wednesday (Jan. 18) to talk to about 100 seniors.

Garrett admitted he hoped the soon-to-be voters would support him in the next election. But he also talked emphatically about rights, privilege and opportunity. “The reason I’m here right now is because I believe in you,” he said.

“We are a nation of flawed people founded on a premise that is about as flawless as could be,” said Garrett as he paced back and forth before the government students in the auditorium. He spoke of Martin Luther King, Jr., Patrick Henry and Barbara Johns – three heroes on whose shoulders the students stand, he said.

When Garrett opened the floor for questions, the students kept up a steady stream until long after the bell had rung for dismissal.
