*****FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE*****
May 29, 2012
Alexandria, Virginia. The Virginia Educators Association recognized Delegate Scott Surovell this past week with a 100% rating for his 2012 voting record. Delegate Surovell is one of only 22 legislators who received this top rating for the 2012 legislative session.
Delegate Surovell, despite our difficult economic times, has been proud to fight for educational funding and support our public schools. This is the third year that he has received this honor from the VEA. In 2010, he also received the VEA’s Rookie of the Year Award and in 2011, he received VEA’s Solid As A Rock Award.
Dr. Kitt Boitnott, the President of VEA, acknowledged Delegate Surovell’s hard work and said, “The 2012 legislative session was very challenging for advocates of quality public education. Delegate Scott Surovell was with us 100% of the time as we fought for adequate funding for our public schools and opposed legislation that would have made it harder to recruit and retain quality teachers. It is my great pleasure to acknowledge Delegate Surovell’s support for public education.
Delegate Surovell is a graduate of Fairfax County’s Waynewood Elementary School, Stephen Foster Intermediate School, West Potomac High School and went on to graduate from James Madison University and the University of Virginia School of Law. “Our public education system provided my family with an affordable education that enabled me to have choices in life,” said Delegate Surovell. “I will continue to fight to ensure that Virginia’s children continue to have the same choices that I enjoyed as a child.”
