Students from our Brook Road Academy, Dooley School, Dooley Center for Alternative Education and Sarah Dooley Center for Autism enjoyed a visit from Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney on Tuesday, May 16. Mayor Stoney spoke to a crowd of 150+ students and staff about his personal journey and his vision for the City of Richmond. He also offered words of encouragement:
“Always shoot for excellence,” he told students. “Outsmart your obstacles. Go over that mountain, around that mountain, through that mountain, underneath that mountain, any which way to succeed.”
Following his remarks he took time to personally meet with students and answer their thoughtful questions. We thank Mayor Stoney for the time and attention to gave to our kids. It was an inspirational day for all.
