A record number of high schools in Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) recently earned the Claudia Dodson VHSL Sportsmanship, Ethics and Integrity Award.
Of the 44 high schools in Virginia to be recognized, nine were from VBCPS. Those high schools are Frank W. Cox, First Colonial, Green Run, Floyd E. Kellam, Kempsville, Landstown, Ocean Lakes, Salem and Tallwood.
The award is given annually by the Virginia High School League (VHSL) to member schools that have established policies and procedures that make sportsmanship a priority and an expectation within the school and school community.
“I consider this to be the Virginia High School League’s most prestigious award,” said VHSL Assistant Director Tom Dolan. “It’s the only award that the entire school is graded on.”
