Nominate a deserving Henrico County Public Schools staff member for a ‘Yay of the Day’

Nominate and employee

Henrico, Va., Nov. 11, 2021 — Henrico County Public Schools has thousands of amazing staff members who make HCPS a safe, supportive and innovative place to learn and work. You can help recognize their contributions by nominating them for a “Yay of the Day.”

Starting in January, HCPS will begin recognizing employees who, through actions big or small, are moving HCPS forward in a positive way. Anyone can nominate an HCPS employee by completing a form available at the school division’s website at This is the second year for the honors, and videos from last year are also available to view at the Yay of the Day page.

Each of the recipients will be recognized by Amy Cashwell, HCPS superintendent, and will be featured on HCPS’ social media platforms.

“This is a small way to shine a light on the good work our employees do each day,” said Cashwell. “We have more than 7,000 talented employees who work together to serve and support our students. No matter how busy the school year is, we must make time to celebrate the many ways they are making a difference for young people.”
