“Last night I had the honor and privilege to be recognized by the Stafford County Board of Supervisors for our contributions to our community. I am grateful and humbled by the recognition and the lady I shared the stage with LIVED history! Mrs. Jackson is 88 years old, all here in Stafford and was one of the graduates of the all black high school in Fredericksburg when Stafford didn’t allow blacks in high school. To share the stage with her was an honor! Further, to see the women and minorities sit on the Board shows the progress Stafford has made.
Congratulations to our Founder & CEO Vernon Green Jr. for being recognized by the Stafford County Board of Supervisors on February 18, 2020 for his contributions to our community! Mr. Green shared a statement about the honor:
I want to thank my family for their support! I want to thank my team for all of the hard work that goes into all we do. I may have received the award but it is a team win! I want to thank the Stafford Board of Supervisors for this honor. And finally, I want to thank the Stafford community, partner organizations, teaches, counselors; all those we work with to make a difference in our community!
