The Transitions program represented an important part of the late Vicki Tippett’s work as a special education teacher.
The Fauquier Excellence in Education Foundation on Friday presented a $10,000 check to Fauquier County Public Schools to support the Transitions special education program.
This donation honors the memory of teacher Vicki Tippett.
Mrs. Tippett unexpectedly passed away on Oct. 28, 2020. She spent more than 25 years as a dedicated special education teacher, and Transitions was an important part of her life’s work. In lieu of flowers, her family asked that donations be made to support Transitions. The check resulted from those donations.
A community-based program that supports Fauquier special education students ages 18 to 22, Transitions provides hands-on work experience and life skills as they transition to life after high school.
The Fauquier Excellence in Education Foundation is the 501(c)(3) non-profit supporting Fauquier County Public Schools by creating, enriching and expanding educational opportunities for students and educators, and by creating community partnerships.
