CEF Bravo! Awards is an annual celebration of the outstanding achievements of Chesterfield County Public School alumni. Held each November, the Bravo! Awards dinner has come to be known as an inspiring evening, offering an opportunity to hear the honorees share their personal story of how a Chesterfield County Public Schools education contributed to launching them on their path to success.
The award recipients spend time in the schools sharing their life experiences and motivating the students to strive for success. Proceeds from the dinner allow the Chesterfield Education Foundation to continue to provide enhanced educational experiences and support for teachers and students.
Since the start of the program in 2009, over 60 alumni have been honored with Bravo! awards.
