Nancy Bryant Weaver has just received an honor afforded to very few.  After 49 years as an educator in Virginia, the Surry County native is having her school library named after her.

Asked about the honor, she said, “I was surprised, shocked, and very excited to have the library at T. Clay Wood Elementary in Prince William County named for me! I had no idea that this was happening and never imagined that this would happen. I am so touched by this and I am truly honored! I want to thank Dr. Andrew Buchheit, my amazing principal, and all of the people who made this happen as well as the PWC School Board for approving this motion.  As an educator for 49 years with 48 years in Prince William County Public Schools as a teacher and librarian, I am beyond happy and I cherish this recognition!”

I always wanted to be a teacher since I was very young,” she said. “When I was young and in elementary school, I would come home and play school with my sister. I always loved to read, especially mysteries, and I give thanks to my mother who read to me from an early age and thanks to my teachers in elementary school who inspired me to love books and learning. I still have some of my favorite books from elementary school.”
