PULASKI COUNTY, Va. – It was a big day for Pulaski Elementary School. Not only was it the first day of school, but Virginia First Lady Pamela Northam also came to visit.

Northam’s focus has always been on access to early education which she showed during today’s visit.

Pulaski educators say they were happy to have their school recognized.
