She holds a bachelor of science degree from the University of Central Oklahoma, a master of education in educational leadership from the University of Mary Washington and is currently pursuing her doctorate of philosophy in educational leadership from Old Dominion University.

Riverbend’s teachers and staff and are invited to meet and greet Elliott May 21 at 2:30 p.m. in the school’s auditorium, according to an email from Spotsylvania Executive Director of Secondary Schools Allen Hicks to school personnel. This upcoming summer, information will be shared with the community about opportunities to engage with Elliott, Spotsylvania Public Schools Director of Communications and Community Engagement Rene Daniels said.
