From President Cecelia S. (Cessie) Howell: I am honored to lead Scenic Virginia at this time. I care so much about the beauty in our Commonwealth, and I wanted to be involved with an organization that was continually striving to save what we have, and to enhance and protect our most vulnerable scenic resources. Scenic Virginia has succeeded in igniting the passions of Virginians in support of scenic beauty. We know that if we don't get serious now about preserving the views and vistas surrounding us, we will soon find that they disappear, never to be seen again. As an organization, we let our voices be heard regarding issues involving scenic viewsheds, Virginia's byways, and cultural landscapes. One of my favorite projects is our annual Scenic Awards program, in which we recognize those groups and individuals who have played an important part in scenic conservation. In particular, we look for programs that can be replicated by others all over our beautiful Commonwealth.
We are developing a Virginia Viewshed Register program to confer official state recognition on significant views and vistas in the Commonwealth.
We monitor legislation during the annual General Assembly Session in Richmond and year-round at the local level to ensure that citizens are aware of the benefits of scenic beauty, as well as potential threats.
