Conexus Signs the Partnership for Petersburg Covenant

Conexus has a longstanding relationship with Petersburg City Public Schools, serving students with vision screening and eyecare. Today, Conexus leadership joined Governor of Virginia Youngkin and hundreds of community, business, nonprofit and faith leaders in Petersburg as the “Partnership for Petersburg” was launched.

From the Governor’s Office:

“Today, we formally launch the Partnership for Petersburg, a holistic partnership bringing more than 40 initiatives under six separate pillars to make a significant difference in the lives and livelihoods of Petersburg’s great people as well as the economic health of the city itself,” said Governor Glenn Youngkin. “It is my sincerest hope to be able to point to the Partnership as a model for our work with other cities across the Commonwealth.”

“The Partnership for Petersburg is the right initiative at the right time for our City,” said Petersburg Mayor Samuel Parham. “Petersburg is at a turning point in history with the many economic development and community enhancement projects underway and in planning with the support of Governor Youngkin, the General Assembly, and the Commonwealth. Our City is positioned to capitalize on opportunities that will bring positive change for generations to come. On behalf of the citizens of Petersburg, City Council, and the City team, I thank Governor Youngkin for creating this innovative and unparalleled partnership.”
