This month, Clearview Elementary School of Herndon was all "a buzz" as it celebrated winning the annual A+ School Principal Challenge. Sponsored by Giant Food, this competition rewards school spirit by inviting principals to submit creative and unique challenges that they personally can meet in order to raise much-needed funding for their programs.

Kimberly Willison, Principal of Clearview, had one of the best ideas—and one of the best executions. Dressed in her school’s yellow jacket mascot uniform, Willison rollerbladed throughout the hallways and visited classrooms, where students supported her with their smiles and cheers. By doing so, she earned the school $1,000. Willison plans to use the money to purchase the "Do the Math" program as well as some additional hands-on math items.

Bryan Hughes, Assistant Store Manager of Giant Food, Towncenter Plaza, enjoyed visiting Clearview and seeing Willison meet her fun challenge. He appreciated the warm reception he received, and he especially liked getting to meet the enthusiastic students. "That’s our future," he said.
