It will mean a lot to the students.

Interventionalists

Ms. Cindy Osborne is excited to be joining the Trevvett Family as an Interventionist!  A native Henricoan, Cindy attended Johnson, Brookland and Hermitage schools before getting her degree in special education from the University of Virginia.  She taught at Highland Springs and Henrico High Schools before taking a sharp left turn and entering an IT career at SunTrust Bank for 32 years.  Her three daughters went to Godwin High School and are all proud Hokie graduates.  In her spare time, Cindy loves to read, sew, travel and spend time with her two granddaughters.  Her husband, Bruce, attended Trevvett as a child, and Cindy is very excited to be restarting her teaching career again with the Tigers!
