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!

Special Events

 

This Page is dedicated to all non-tournament RBI events.

All events on this page are open to the public!  We encourage you to take a look and join us for what should be a great event!

College Showcase – (Click the link to find out more)
Each year since 2012, RBI has hosted a college showcase where high school coaches choose candidates who may not have an opportunity to be seen by college coaches, to come and showcase their talents on the field. College coaches are hoping to find players who they have not seen playing travel ball, either because their travel team did not showcase them or they can not afford to play travel ball. High School coaches are able to nominate players for a scholarshipped opportunity to come and stay and play and RBI finds sponsors for those players. Our goal is to place kids in college regardless of their ability to pay to play baseball.
Golf Tournament – (Click the link to find out more)
Each year since 2008, the program has hosted a golf tournament at Stonehenge Country Club. We want to bring members of the community to play golf, share a meal and hear about what the students are doing at James River High School. Our tournament is run by a student in the Leadership Program at James River who brings a group of other students and parents together to make the day run smoothly.
Christmas Tree Sale – (Click the link to find out more)
The first week of each December since 2008, the program has hosted a Christmas tree sale and we buy the trees from Nova Scotia. It is a fun weekend that gets everyone – whether you buy a tree, garland or a wreath – into the spirit of the holidays and new year coming. Our parents and players work this event each year.
