Mr. Titus, there are many reasons I can think of to thank you. Believing in this private-public partnership is one and believing we could create the building is another. The most important reason to thank you, however, is for the leadership your faculty demonstrated to my family when my son became a temporary special needs student after his brain injury. That mirror image of your leadership is your legacy. – Lisa Germano

I have worked in the education community in one capacity or another since graduating from law school in 1986. In all of those years, I have come across some wonderful educators.

Building Campaign

Let’s Put Mr. Titus’s name on the building that was built with his vision! Help us achieve this by December 31, 2014 

The Building

Make a donation and add a personal note to Mr. Titus, as you know he was famous for writing to others – now it is his turn to receive them- remind him of how he impacted your life, about the note he sent to you that was meaningful or just tell him how much you appreciate him. As a member of the founding Board of Directors for this James River High School centered nonprofit called RBI, he has made a difference in Chesterfield County that spreads wider than James River High School. Check out RBI’s mission. It has his signature all over it.

John Titus was the visionary principal at James River High School who saw the opportunity for a public-private partnership to be a successful way to integrate the school with the community.   This partnership would be a model for other public high schools to partner with local businesses to do similar good works in times of reduced school funding.  Little did Mr. Titus know, but the building he helped to build on the James River High School baseball field with the approval of the School Board, would turn into a beautiful facility groomed by the high school baseball coaches and admired by many people far away.  Mr. Titus deserves recognition in the most public of ways:  His name on this facility.

Help us make this happen with your donation. We need 1,000 people to donate $50 to fulfill a $50,000 matching gift by December 31. That also means anyone can lead a group of 10 people who each donate $5.  Or, if you are not able to donate money, perhaps the best gift of all is your time: To find others by passing on the word back to alumni – donations can be your time to find others who attended JHRS or their parents, who may want to honor Mr. Titus in this manner. Please post on our Facebook Page your donations of time and talent!  All proceeds will be used towards the financing for the building that will bear his name.
