The Chesterfield County Public Schools Hall of Fame is inducting six 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. This is the third class of inductees into the Hall of Fame, which was established to recognize their lasting impact.

These memorable educators are being inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2024:

  • Jim Alberston, teacher and coach
  • Betsy Stark Barton, teacher and history specialist
  • Joann Crowell-Redd, principal and director of human resources
  • Donna Dalton, chief academic officer
  • Patricia Lancaster, teacher and administrator
  • Sandra Silvestre, teacher

The new honorees will be inducted April 11 during the Hall of Fame Gala, presented by the Chesterfield Education Foundation in partnership with TowneBank. The gala is open to the public; tickets can be purchased at for $65. Sponsorship information for the gala is also available at that link. Questions? Call 804-639-8774.

The six new honorees will join previous Hall of Fame inductees, who are featured in this digital gallery. Proceeds from the Hall of Fame Gala will support MEGA Mentors.
