“I really enjoy working for a small school system that is truly a community of learners.  From the elementary to middle and high, we see each student as “our” student, no matter which school the child attends.  This division is truly supported by the City of Galax, the School Board, central office, the community in which we live, our parents and students.  I often tell the faculty and staff in this division how fortunate I am to work with such a caring group of individuals who are like family.  I am proud of our schools, especially of our students,” says Legg.
