JEFF's Story

Jeff Wilson, born in Buffalo and raised in Richmond, always knew he wanted to be a teacher.  He attended North Carolina Wesleyan University, majoring in history and education, and then the University of Virginia for his graduate studies in school counseling and administration.

In 1968 Jeff began his career with Alexandria City Public Schools.  Over two decades, he wore multiple hats – teacher, counselor, vocational assessment specialist, administrator – and principal of an alternative vocational high school serving underprivileged and special education students.

Jeff moved to Fairfax County Public Schools in 1989 as Director of Student Services across several schools.

In retirement he found a new home as an adjunct instructor at George Mason University, adding a philanthropic niche as scholarship director with the Apple Federal Credit Union Foundation, which included active participation in NVADACA as membership chair, president, and scholarship coordinator.

Jeff’s lifelong commitment to fostering excellence in education and athletics is a testament to the power of dedicated service and the profound impact an individual can have on the futures of young adults.  In recognition of his contributions, NVADACA commemorates Jeff Wilson’s legacy by establishing a scholarship in his name.  This award symbolizes his commitment and serves as a torchlight for high school athletes aspiring to their own educational and athletic successes.
