Office and Administrative Staff


Mr. Mark Levy, RVGS Director

I took over as Director of the Roanoke Valley Governor’s School in 2016, and I have enjoyed every day of serving our students and school!  As an alumnus of RVGS, I find it deeply meaningful to be the leader of this school, as this institution means so much to our student body and wider community.  My goal is to ensure that RVGS provides our students with a premiere STEM learning environment by developing a school culture centered on rigor, critical thinking, and personal growth.  I feel truly fortunate to have the opportunity to develop relationships with our amazing students, staff, and families.


Mrs. Paula Buch, Administrative Assistant and Bookkeeper

I began my exciting journey at RVGS in May, 2007.  What a wonderful place to be!  I love interacting with the students and parents.  There is this sense of camaraderie… a sense of family between faculty, students and parents like none I’ve ever seen.  I am honored to be a part of this amazing program!


Mrs. Kathy Sebolt, Director of Guidance

This is my 11th year at RVGS!  I am here to support students academically as well as emotionally. I help students with study skills, time management, stress management and text anxiety among many other things.  I also support students through the college application process.  I am in charge of scheduling, grade reporting and testing.  I love my students and I love working at RVGS…I can’t imagine being anywhere else!
