Each year, the Prince William Chamber of Commerce supports higher education at their annual Education & Innovation Summit. The event is planned by their Education & Innovation Committee and will be held Tuesday, June 9 from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. The event will be conducted virtually using Zoom and mobile call-in options. For the first time, the event is FREE and open to the public — thanks to our Sponsors!  Registration is required to receive login information for the event.

The program features a panel of our three Superintendents: Dr. Steven L. Walts, Superintendent, Prince William County Public Schools; Dr. Kevin Newman, Superintendent, City of Manassas Public Schools; and Dr. Bruce McDade, Superintendent, City of Manassas Park Public Schools. The superintendents will share their vision and plans for the future of education.

Award presentations will be made to four high school seniors who won $2,500 academic scholarships. These seniors have demonstrated both academic success and a commitment to volunteer service in our community. Lockheed Martin, Amazon Web Services and Micron Technology (on behalf of SPARK and BELL Foundations) are the Student Scholarship sponsors. It is due to the generosity of companies like these, and the Prince William Chamber’s commitment to supporting higher education, that makes a difference for students to pursue their dreams. You can demonstrate your support by registering to attend this special event!

  1. Emma Carroll – Osbourn Park High School – Sponsor: Amazon Web Services
  2. Cameron McQuillan – Battlefield High School – Sponsor: Micron Technology
