ASHLAND, Va. – The Richmond Times-Dispatch (RTD) has named Dr. Michael Gill, superintendent, as a 2018 RTD Person of the Year honoree. Dr. Gill is one of only twenty-five individuals selected for this distinguished honor that recognizes servant-leaders and others who strengthen and highlight the Richmond region. 

“I am honored to be considered for such a prestigious award and part of a group of honorees who have contributed so much in our area. I feel privileged to serve the students of Hanover County, and I am fortunate to work alongside so many talented and dedicated professionals who always have our students’ best interests at heart. Our sustained success is reflective of their efforts, as well as the remarkably strong support of our community that continues to support a robust public education system in Hanover County,” said Dr. Michael Gill, superintendent. 

The RTD invites nominations from the community and selects some honorees based on achievements during a particular year or in recent years. Others are cited for lifelong or ongoing contributions to the Richmond region. The RTD will announce one of them as the 2018 RTD Person of the Year during a private luncheon held on Monday, December 10 where honorees and their guests will be recognized individually and as a group. 

The 2018 honorees will be featured in the December edition of the RTD’s Discover Richmond magazine, which publishes on Tuesday, December 11. The magazine captures not just how the honorees have shaped the region but who they are as individuals behind their titles and accomplishments. 

The RTD introduced its Person of the Year program in 2015, which was the 165th anniversary of the RTD and the 40th anniversary of its Discover Richmond publication. To celebrate its milestone of service to Richmond, the RTD developed a civic recognition program to honor individuals who serve or achieve in our region.
