[ARCHIVED] Superintendent Shifflette given Hampton’s Distinguished Citizen Medal

May 27, 2015 -- Hampton City Schools Superintendent Linda Shifflette has been awarded Hampton’s Distinguished Citizen Medal for her extraordinary service to Hampton’s educational system, schoolchildren and community.

The award, established in 1964, is roughly Hampton’s version of a key to the city. It has been given about two dozen times.

Shifflette, a native of Hampton who was educated in the city’s public schools, served for more than 40 years as a business education teacher, cooperative office education coordinator and deputy superintendent and superintendent. Under her leadership, the school system added career academies at the four high schools, opened two PreK-8 schools, implemented a personal tablet technology program, and had a school named a Blue Ribbon School.

“Dr. Linda Shifflette is an effective and innovative administrator who chose to spend her entire career making our Hampton school system among the best,” said Mayor George Wallace. “Above all, her personal commitment, compassion and concern for the people of Hampton – especially the young people – will always set her apart and above others in her profession.”
