HENRICO, Va. (WWBT) - Thirty-two Henrico teachers have received certification from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, the nation’s highest mark of accomplishment.

Henrico County Public Schools said this is the most teachers in the division to get the certification.

In addition to those teachers earning the status, five teachers renewed their certifications.
