The Chesterfield County Public Schools Hall of Fame is inducting seven new members, in recognition of their outstanding accomplishments in support of students and schools.

The school system is built on the talents of outstanding teachers, educational and operational support staff members, leaders and volunteers. Their abilities and dedication are why Chesterfield County Public Schools — the largest school division in central Virginia — is a nationally recognized, award-winning school system. The Hall of Fame, which inducted its first honorees in 2021, was established to recognize their lasting impact.

Here are the memorable educators being inducted into the Hall of Fame:

  • Gene Brown, teacher and administrator
  • Ceal Donohue, teacher and administrator
  • Dr. Lynda Gillespie, teacher and administrator
  • Pete Koste, principal
  • Robin Morgan, principal
  • Stan Morgan, teacher and coach
  • Dr. Marcus Newsome, superintendent

The new honorees will join the inaugural inductees from 2021: Jamie Accashian, Dr. Jane Baskerville, Dr. Billy Cannaday, Greg Cummings, Ralph Floyd, Betty Hornick, Deloris Jackson, Sue Robertson, Dianne Smith, Louan Stanfield and Jack Winn.

The new honorees will be inducted March 23 during the Chesterfield County Public Schools Hall of Fame Gala, presented by the Chesterfield Education Foundation in partnership with TowneBank. Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling 804-639-8774. Sponsorship information for the gala is also available at that link.
