School Board Selects 2023 Honored Citizens

Since 1975, the Board has established the memorable tradition of recognizing special volunteers who have made extraordinary contributions to Arlington Public Schools. The Honored Citizen Award recognizes the countless hours – over many years – that community members spend dedicating their time to a wide variety of school activities and supporting our students and staff.

The Arlington School Board values this commitment to the well-being of our students, and while the Board honors every volunteer, the individuals who are chosen as ‘Honored Citizens’ stand out, having demonstrated an ongoing, sustained commitment to our students, our schools, and our community for at least five years.

Through their volunteer work, the following individuals support the APS Strategic Goals of providing multiple pathways to success for students; ensuring that students are healthy, safe and supported; and of building and maintaining strong and mutually supportive partnerships.

For 2023, the School Board has named three outstanding volunteers as Honored Citizens:

  • Janna Dressel
  • Dr. Rick Jackson
  • Carmina Sinani

The Board will recognize the 2023 Honored Citizens at the April 27 School Board Meeting at 7 p.m. at the Syphax Education Center, 2110 Washington Blvd.  A reception will be held in their honor at 5:30 p.m.
