Boys Home staff and students are excited to announce Cindy Robertson’s five-year work anniversary. She currently serves as a reading specialist. When she first began at Boys Home, she served as a houseparent. Cindy has an undergraduate degree from Longwood University in elementary education and a master’s degree from the University of Virginia in reading education. Prior to her arrival on campus, she served as a teacher for Roanoke City Public Schools for thirty years. Cindy’s connection to Boys Home began in her childhood. Her father, Jerry Eggleston, was a former development director at Boys Home.
Cindy was asked why she chose education as a career path. “I see myself in the students I serve. When I was young, I struggled with reading and comprehension. I had to discover a way to learn that worked for me. I meet the students on their current reading level and help them progress. My classroom size is two to three students, making individualized attention possible daily. I believe God called me to serve here. I have witnessed lives transformed by the program. Boys Home is truly a blessing from God!” Cindy’s focus on a Godly life exemplifies the values of Boys Home. Congratulations, Cindy!
