On Wednesday, August 26 at the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce's 2015 State of Our Community annual luncheon, ZSR Assistant Director Joy Vermillion Heinsohn presented the 10th annual Hubert B. Humphrey, Jr. School Improvement Award to the most improved high school in Guilford County during the 2014-2015 school year. This year's award was given to Debbie Kraszeski, Principal at Southern Guilford High School. Winners receive a $10,000 check to be used to strengthen and develop the entire staff of the school. They also have their name inscribed on the Hugh Humphrey Cup.
The award is named in honor and in memory of the life and contributions of Hubert B. Humphrey, Jr. who served as a trustee of the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation for more than 20 years and also served as the Foundation's legal counsel during that time.
