Dr Fisher and Assistant Principal

Dr. Cheri Beth Fisher, principal of Cold Harbor Elementary School (CHES) is the Hanover County Public Schools winner of the 2017-2018 R.E.B. Award for Distinguished Educational Leadership by The Community Foundation. As a recipient, Fisher will receive a $7,500 cash grant, as well as an additional $7,500 towards a school project.

One principal from each school division in the counties of Hanover, Henrico, and Chesterfield, as well as the City of Richmond, receives the award annually. It serves to “recognize the principals who go beyond the day-to-day demands of their position to create an exceptional educational environment.” The school community and the public submit the nominations.

“To say I am honored to receive this award would be an understatement. Serving as the principal of Cold Harbor Elementary School has been my greatest privilege, and I am humbled that other people see my love for this job in my daily work. I am beyond excited for the opportunities this award will provide to Cold Harbor students! Throughout my experiences as both a teacher and administrator in Hanover County Public Schools, I have had the opportunity to work alongside the most skilled and dedicated teachers and staff who have inspired me to continuously improve my own practice. These educators have molded me into the leader I am and are the people who deserve the real recognition,” said Fisher.

“This is a well-deserved honor for Dr. Fisher, and I am proud of her accomplishment. She is an innovative leader who has a strong passion for ensuring our students receive relevant and engaging instruction. We are truly fortunate to have someone of her caliber serving our students and community,” said Dr. Michael Gill, Superintendent of Schools.

Fisher began her career in education in 2000 as a teacher at Mechanicsville Elementary School. She served as an assistant principal at Pole Green Elementary School and Laurel Meadow Elementary School. She has been the principal of CHES since 2013.
