Teacher of the Year Award

National Conference Center


Each year, the Loudoun Education Foundation hosts a dinner honoring the teachers of Loudoun County Public Schools that were nominated for the Agnes Meyer Outstanding Teacher Award. The Washington Post Company Educational Foundation established the Agnes Meyer Outstanding Teacher Awards to recognize teachers who exemplify excellence in their profession. Agnes Meyer, a staunch supporter and defender of public education, was the wife of Eugene Meyer, who purchased The Post in 1933. The goals of the Agnes Meyer Outstanding Teacher Awards are to recognize excellence in teaching, to encourage creative and quality instruction and to contribute in a substantive way to the improvement of education in the Washington metropolitan area.

Excellence in Education Banquet

National Conference Center


The idea of celebrating excellence in education was introduced in 1983 by Al Sowards, who then served as LCPS social studies, gifted program supervisor. The first banquet was held at Leesburg Baptist Church with 18 students being honored. Dinner was served on plates borrowed from Loudoun County High School; Sowards set the tables and washed the dishes afterward. Today the banquet honors more than 200 seniors from Loudoun County's 13 high schools and Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology who ranked in the top 5 percent of their class academically during the first three years of their high school career.

LEF President Wade Tetsuka explained why the Golf Classic is a popular fund-raiser year after year. “It’s because what’s behind the Foundation is what makes people happy about philanthropy; it’s education and the local community. Everything that is raised today goes right back into the local community.”
