Henrico County School Board votes to rename Godwin H.S. specialty center in honor of beloved teacher

HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — The Henrico County School Board voted unanimously on Thursday to rename Mills Godwin High School’s specialty center in honor of a beloved teacher and director at the center.

In light of the vote, the school’s Center for Medical Sciences will become the Todd Phillips Center for Medical Sciences.

Phillips taught at the school and served as a coach and center director. He died in a car accident in June of this year.

A post on the Henrico County Public Schools Facebook page reads, “‘TPhilly’ was remembered for his enormous positive impact on the entire Godwin community, which he will continue to have in the future.”

Phillips was a longtime teacher, coach and center director who died in a car accident in June. Last year he led the center’s transition to a focus on medical sciences from its initial emphasis on math, science and technology.
