Since Lead Virginia, how have you put your social capital to work?

Since then, I've been able to engage leaders like Mr. Barry DuVal of the Virginia Chamber as I've taken this message to schools and communities, and to powerful education groups like the Virginia Association of School Superintendents and the Virginia School Board Association.
