&uot;All of the regional award winners demonstrated leadership skills that were instrumental in improving the student achievement.&uot;

The VASS newsletter wrote that Liverman &uot;subscribes to two important guiding principles in the decisions he makes as he leads his school division: ‘Do what is best for the students of Suffolk Public Schools’ and ‘Do what will take each child where he or she is capable of going.’

&uot;These principles have proven to be the keys to Liverman’s success in reorganizing his division to improve student achievement.

&uot;Thanks to Liverman’s efforts, the Suffolk students are reaching their full potential.&uot;
