BVCPS 2018 Heroes' Breakfast

On the morning of December 14, the Buena Vista City Public School District hosted the Fourth Annual Heroes’ Breakfast. The breakfast is a sunrise meal that honors those who support the school district, the students, and the Buena Vista community.

Staff and officials from the City of Buena Vista, the Buena Vista School Board, Dominion Energy, Munters, Everbrite, Modine, local colleges, and our local police and sheriff departments enjoyed some of the finest breakfast foods around cooked and served up by our very own Parry McCluer Middle School ‘Blue Hole Café’ staff.

Those who honored would never consider themselves heroes. They are just hard working people who do their jobs, but to our kids and school district, they are in fact heroic.

"These organizations have always supported us," said Superintendent, Dr. John Keeler. "Just one example is the Buena Vista Fire Department and the Buena Vista Rescue Squad – we call upon them during football season and they just help out. Both groups cover our ball games for free. This is just a little something we can do to show them our appreciation." 

He continued, “Buena Vista is a close-knit community.  Reaching out to support one another is what we do.  Our school division is grateful to have such caring and supportive allies.”

The men and women who are honored all say they appreciate the fact the school divsion will take the time to just say thank you.

"It means a lot," said Dominion Energy's, Johnny Swink. "It's very rewarding to get invited to something like this. The schools are very important. The children are the future of this community."

"I think it means a lot to know that when you've helped, somebody appreciates it," Dominion Energy's, Marshal Smith said. “I think the schools are the top priority for this community. Through the years, Buena Vista has had some setbacks, but the way the kids respond is heartwarming." 

"I think it's neat," Dominion Energy's Aaron Coleman said. "It's not something that was a requirement, but we appreciate it. To see this school succeed and grow is important and I think the kids are getting the right morals taught to them and it's great." 

So again, thank you to those who support our school district and make it the best it can be!
