Fluvanna County High School Principal James Barlow. Bullies. Cliques. Mean girls. Cafeteria food. Sex. Peer pressure. Body issues. Diagnoses. Identity struggles. The high school experience can be the best years of a student’s life but for some it’s the worst.

Anyone who has ever felt alone or unsure of themselves could probably relate to Jimmy. He’s beginning his high school career in Fluvanna and, because he is overweight, is under the watchful eyes of classmates who can’t seem to find what’s good about him.

Two particular athletes are quite popular in the school and, though they are faced with their own pressures to perform well in the classroom as well as on the field, they sometimes point out Jimmy’s flaws, and also those of anyone else around them.

The Flying Fluco boys’ basketball team is under the tutelage of Jason Davis this season. Longtime Coach Munro Rateau has retired, and Davis, his assistant for many years, is now in charge. Rateau had a very successful run, but last year was a down year. Most of the starters last season were seniors, and the top underclassman on last year’s team has transferred out.

So Coach Davis will be fielding a team that is young and fairly inexperienced. The competition will be tough. The team opened its season at home on Nov. 29, hosting a highly regarded Waynesboro squad. On Tuesday, Dec. 6, they will host another powerhouse when they take on Western Albemarle.

After seven years at the helm of Fluvanna County Public Schools, Superintendent Gena Keller is moving on up.

In January Keller will become the coordinator for professional development for the Virginia Department of Education. She and her family will continue living in their Fluvanna house, she said, because “it’s home.”
The Fluvanna Review sat down with Keller to talk over how she got here, what she accomplished and what she’s looking forward to.

What interested you in taking the job of superintendent in Fluvanna?

The funny thing is I wasn’t interested. I didn’t even know about it until Rosa Atkins, the superintendent in Charlottesville approached me. [At the time Keller was a Charlottesville elementary school principal.] She asked if I ever considered taking on a superintendent job, and I said no. Well, she printed out the application, handed it to me and said, “Seriously consider this because I think you can help this community.”
