6. Student, Employee and Public Awards and Recognitions
Top 30 Technologists, Transformer & Trailblazers Award

The School Board is pleased to recognize Virginia Beach City Public Schools Chief Academic Officer Dr. Amy Cashwell. Dr. Cashwell was recently selected as a 2017 Top 30 Technologists, Transformers & Trailblazers honoree, a distinction presented by the Center for Digital Education.

This annual award recognizes people and organizations who are moving the needle in K-12 and higher education. They are the bold decision-makers who, according to the organization, are visionaries in increasing and advocating for technology in schools as well as using it as a catalyst to improve the personalization of learning.

Cashwell has done just that in VBCPS. She is recognized for her leadership and transformational work to support the school division’s digital learning goals, including establishing the Digital Learning Anchor Schools initiative and establishing best practices to support the expansion of digital learning in all of the division’s schools. Dr. Cashwell’s leadership also brought about organizational change that today provides a school-based instructional technology support program in every school as well as ongoing professional learning for those instructional coaches.

She is indeed a trailblazer and a transformer and for that we congratulate her on this well-deserved award.
