Chuck and Lynda Robb

The Honorable Chuck and Lynda Robb

Chuck and Lynda Robb were honored for both his military service as a Marine in Vietnam in 1968 and their public service as Virginia governor and US Senator, as well as early childhood education. Lynda was a Founding Member of the Reading isFundamental (RIF) Program, and the evidence-based program, Read for Success, helps children improve reading proficiency and combat summer learning loss – a contributing factor to the achievement gap. 

Former residents of Charlottesville while Chuck was attending law school at the University of Virginia, their presence with us on Memorial Day Sunday 2016 marked forty years since they spoke at the inauguration of the Charlottesville downtown mall, on July 3, 1976. It was very fitting that they were welcomed back at the Paramount Theater on the same and now

Because ParadeRest is about military members and their families, it was especially meaningful to honor Chuck and Lynda’s record of service to the military, a commitment that continues to this day.
