Professional Lobbyist Needed!


The Friends of Virgina Governor's Schools is seeking volunteers with professional lobbying experience who can  provide legislative strategy guidance. The FOVGS supports all 18 academic-year governor’s schools in the Commonwealth by promoting these schools’ reputation for excellence in education and achievement and working to protect state funding for these schools. 

Parents from MLWGS, Appomattox Regional Governor’s School (ARGS) and other programs are working together to shape the goals of FOVGS for the upcoming year. In light of the budget challenges already faced by MLWGS, defining FOVGS’ legislative strategy is critically important. 

Volunteers with professional lobbying experience who are willing to sit down with a small group of FOVGS members to help develop a plan for the coming year, please contact Mary Phillippo Parker or Cara Metz.
