Virginia College news from Tulsa, Columbus and Greenville

Jul 6, 2012

Tulsa: The skies were clear for a recent open house event which was informally dubbed "Thunder Up your Community…Thunder Up your Education!"

Even though Oklahoma was in basketball frenzy, many attendees took time to give blood at the American Red Cross mobile unit. The Virginia College staff grilled complementary hamburgers and hot dogs, and local radio station K-JAMZ did a live broadcast.

Columbus: LaQuanda Carter, Program Director for the Medical Assistant program, led her students in a community event called Promoting Healthy Living. This event was held with the Columbus Housing Authority and offered blood pressure checks and other services.

Greenville: Is homemade ice cream the only thing sweeter than success?

Instructor Beth Howard recently concluded her EDU 1020 class on a sweet note with a homemade ice cream social.

Campus President Mitch Sudy said, "On multiple occasions throughout the term, students from Ms. Howard's EDU 1020 class have stopped me in the halls to say how great an instructor she is and how good a job she's done preparing them for employment."
