Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 2, 1974):
This structure commemorates Virginia E. Randolph (1874-1958), a notable Black teacher who, because of her exemplary work at Henrico County's Mountain Road School, in 1908 was asked to become the country's first Jeanes Supervising Industrial Worker, or instructor, under the sponsorship of the Negro Rural School Fund. Her task was to improve vocational training in elementary and secondary schools throughout the county; her success in that role made her the model for thousands of others in a program that was instituted throughout the South.
