Mills E. Godwin High School, located in the Tuckahoe District, opened in 1980. It is named for the only Virginia Governor elected twice by popular vote. Governor Godwin served in both houses of the General Assembly and as Lieutenant Governor. An attorney from Nansemond County (now the City of Suffolk), Godwin instituted the first sales tax in Virginia during his first administration to invest in a newly-created Community College System.
