Daniel Root of CVS Caremark said he was very impressed with the students and looks forward to participating in future events. American Family Care's Regional Vice President, Gwen Dwyer, reported lining up 24 interviews for AFC clinics in the Huntsville, Decatur, and central Tennessee areas.

Cost Cutters, Smart Styles, Great Clips and other local salons were able to meet with our Cosmetology and Therapeutic Massage students.

Virginia College in Pensacola recently celebrated its quarterly Student Appreciation Day combined with its Family and Friends Day. Students were encouraged to invite adult family members and friends to attend the event and participate in classes. About 35 guests received an in–depth look at the college.

Faculty and staff members served hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, cookies, chips, and sodas. They also joined students in karaoke performances.

While the party was happening outside, the Pensacola chapter of Future Business Leaders of America – Phi Beta Lambda (FBLA–PBL) hosted its first Professional Attire Yard Sale in the student break area. Donated clothing and accessories were available for purchase so students could purchase business attire at a reduced cost.

Twenty four students from Virginia College School of Business & Health in Chattanooga got an up-close look at muscles and organs in the body while attending the recent exhibit "Bodies...the Exhibition" at Atlanta's Atlantic Station. Medical Assistant students and members of the Medical Assistant (MA) Club raised money to attend the exhibit by putting on bake sales on campus.
