NELSON COUNTY RESIDENTS, BUSINESSES INVITED
TO SHARE IDEAS WITH PVCC AT FORUM
Piedmont Virginia Community College is hosting a Forum on Tuesday, Sept. 23, at 7 p.m. at Nelson County High School to help determine how PVCC can best serve Nelson County residents and businesses now and in the years ahead.
College representatives will be there to listen to ideas and answer questions. A drawing for a free PVCC class valued at $266 will be held and light refreshments will be served.
“Nelson County is part of PVCC’s service region,” noted Frank Friedman, PVCC president, “so at this Forum the College wants to learn first-hand from residents and businesses about their educational needs and the future educational needs of their children and employees. We’re interested in hearing what types of classes, training and services are desired, either on PVCC’s campus, in Nelson County or through the Internet.”
Friedman noted that a PVCC student and Nelson County resident, Jacob Neal, was named the top community college student in Virginia and one of the top 20 in the nation last academic year. Nearly 300 Nelson County residents took PVCC classes as new or returning students during the 2006-07 academic year. Of those, 85 percent attended part time.
For more information about the Forum, contact Anita R. Showers, marketing and media relations manager, at 434.961.5247 or email@example.com. Nelson County High School is located at 6919 Thomas Nelson Highway in Lovingston.
