It is my pleasure to donate to a cause that John Titus is a part of. I was his School Resource Officer for 6 years and never worked with anyone that was very professional and caring! I was made to feel part of a team that I believe was very successful!

Giving back to the man who has given so much!

Mr. Titus (I still can’t call you by your first name), I’m not sure any words I post here will adequately convey my appreciation for all you’ve done for me. It wasn’t fair to my other bosses that you were the first impression of what a leader could and should be. During my student teaching at Monacan, I’ll never forget seeing you in your full suit on the ground trying to fix the juke box. I said, “Isn’t there someone else to do that?” And you said, “They are busy, and I know the seniors will want to listen to music at lunch.” That, for me, captures how you are a true servant leader; you do what it is you would ask of overs. I couldn’t have picked a better person to be around when I had not 1, not 2, but 3 children. (Yes, I’m still holding at 3!!!) Each time I received an article from you about Michelle Duggar having another child, I smiled. Thank you for inspiring all of us with your wit, candor, and especially your humility. Best always, Sarah Mansfield

John Titus is a professional in every sense of the word and is unquestionably one of the best school administrators in the field of education. In addition to his professionalism and tremendous leadership skills, he is kind, caring, and compassionate as well. He commanded respect from the entire school community. He made decisions carefully and always put the best interest of students first. I learned a great deal about being a successful school administrator working with John Titus. He had a way of making those with whom he worked want to perform at their highest level and he was quick to acknowledge the hard work, positive contributions, and successes of all those individuals. I think everyone benefitted, at one time or another, from one or more of his wonderful handwritten notes. I have vivid memories of excited students showing me the note they received from Mr. Titus-and occasionally asking me to decipher it for them as his handwriting, while always recognizable, could be a little……

difficult to decipher! Those notes made everyone feel special. John also has a wonderful sense of humor. I can remember a number of conversations during which we reflected on a particularly challenging situation, day or week that would end in laughter as John somehow managed to find the humor in the challenge. John had very high standards for himself and for others, and provided an tremendous role model for students and staff. He is an amazing leader and a wonderful man who is truly deserving of acknowledgement and appreciation for all that he has accomplished over his years in education. I will always be grateful for having had the good fortune to work with and learn from John Titus for so many years. He’s definitely “the best”!

Hi John, It appears that you are once again doing good deeds under the shadow of The Clarke Kent(Superman) persona! It is no surprise to me that you would be the force behind the creation of a “first class” baseball facility. I would expect nothing less. While so many of your fans remember your leadership at James River, I want to take this opportunity to share some John Titus moments that some may not know about. I will never forget the the kind handwritten note that you sent to me in Hampton, welcoming me to Chesterfield as the new superintendent. I will forever remember you for your thoughtfulness and the obligatory “purple and green” m&ms! However, I believe my fondest memory of you is seeing you impersonating Michael Jackson at a Senior Class event. A member of your staff sent me the CD……..(continued)

continued…. The word on the street was that Mr. T  performed a “cool” moonwalk. What made this event so memorable, was the backstory that lead to that performance. Some months earlier the Senior class had acted poorly at a school event with parents and others in attendance. As a result of this uncharacteristic behavior, you suspended Senior Class activities for the spring. Members of the senior class were disappointed, but also very remorseful. When asked by some the seniors if they could have a talent show, you not only said yes, but you also agreed to their request that you dress up as MJ-silver gloves, jacket with glitter, moon walking shoes and classic white socks. Wow! Seeing you on the CD reminded me that you truly are a “student advocate” in every way. Thanks, John, for all that you do to inspire a giving spirit! From a Hokie/Hoo to another Hoo….I am so VERY PROUD of you!
