Alexandria Chamber of Commerce Honors Grace Episcopal Teacher - Amanda Hungerford
The Alexandria Chamber of Commerce announced the honorees for the 2016 40 under 40 awards inaugural class.
The 40 under 40 program was established by the Chamber to recognize top men and women, age 40 and under, engaged in a variety of fields including business, technology, nonprofit management, civic life, public service, education, and the arts, who are shaping Alexandria for the future.
Honorees were selected by a selection committee and evaluated on specific criteria including professional and scholastic accomplishments, community and volunteer impact, and their goals for future and lasting impact. The Chamber intends to use this year's event as the commencement of a broader leadership initiative, further engaging awardees within the community that has nominated and selected them to make a difference.
Grace Episcopal School is especially proud to share that one of this year's inaugural winners is our 5th grade teacher, Amanda Hungerford. She has worked as an educator at Grace for the past 10 years. Prior to teaching the 5th grade, she spent six years co-teaching in the kindergarten classroom and three years teaching 4th grade. In addition to her classroom responsibilities, Mrs. Hungerford organizes and leads the new teacher orientation program, facilitates a faculty diversity discussion group, organizes a supply drive for the Alexandria Animal Welfare League, and coordinates the School's Box Tops collections. Grace is fortunate to have such a talented and dedicated educator impacting the lives of our students. Congratulations to Mrs. Hungerford!
