On January 8, 2024, the Virginia Piedmont Heritage Area (VPHA) hosted its annual Heritage Hero awards ceremony at Buchanan Hall in Upperville, VA. Loudoun County Public Schools Social Science Supervisor Danyael Graham was awarded the Public Educator of the Year award for her commitment to sharing the history of the Heritage Area with a broader audience. 

Since taking on the role of Supervisor, Danyael has worked closely with community organizations, including VPHA, to bring local history to students throughout the county. She has been instrumental in connecting teachers to VPHA staff and making schools aware of the historical resources available in the Heritage Area.
