Lynchburg's Dunbar M.S. Principal Brian Wray Recognized

Lynchburg, VA - Dunbar Middle School Principal Brian Wray is known throughout the school community as being an exemplary leader. Now, the Virginia Department of Education has endorsed the long-time Lynchburg City Schools educator as a Principal of Distinction.

The Principal of Distinction, Administration and Supervision Level II endorsement is given to experienced administrators who have completed a rigorous endorsement process that takes approximately 16 months to complete. After a review committee visited Paul Laurence Dunbar Middle School for Innovation and a portfolio of evidence was compiled, Superintendent Scott Brabrand made the recommendation to the Virginia Department of Education.

"Mr. Wray's exemplary leadership for over a decade at Paul Laurence Dunbar Middle School has made him a role model for principals not only within Lynchburg City Schools but also around Virginia," said Lynchburg City Schools Superintendent Brabrand. "His focus on high standards for both students and teachers has made him a role model for our community. We are fortunate to have Mr. Wray on the LCS team," said Brabrand.

According to the Department of Education there are only 28 individuals in the Commonwealth with an active license who hold the Principal of Distinction Pre-K-12 endorsement.
