Mar 26, 2013

Virginia College in Tulsa students were recently honored with certificates and pins for President's List, Dean's List and Perfect Attendance for the fall, 2012 quarter.

Virginia College in Montgomery is proud to announce that Therapeutic Massage graduate, Pamela Foster, recently celebrated the grand opening of her new business venture, Keep in Touch, in Wetumpka, Ala.

"She found her passion in massage therapy as she had a strong urge to help others. We're proud of her accomplishments," said Christian Lara, Career & Market Development Manager.

Also in Montgomery, the Cosmetology students who Campus President Madeline Little "adopted" to follow her through her breast cancer journey, now in their third quarter, recently gave her a Valentine's Day surprise.

"They not only dressed in red to support the American Heart Association, but they also spent their spare time and money to hand-make a wig especially for me," said Ms. Little, dressed in white, above. "Apparently, the natural hair wig with bangs gave me what they called 'the red carpet look.'"

With the radiation treatments half-way behind her, Ms. Little says, "I'm touched that these students are always making sure that I look good. They are truly an inspiration."

In Greenville, members of the Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda (FBLA-PBL) recently commemorated FBLA Week 2013 with activities that support the culture and ethics of the organization.

According to its website, FBLA-PBL is the premier business education association preparing students for careers in business.

During the week, members encouraged students from various programs to join the organization. They also helped raise awareness and funds for March of Dimes and its support of premature babies. Donors were allowed to enter the school's "dance zone" where the latest line dances were performed. The week concluded with an induction ceremony for incoming members.

Finally, in Augusta, Campus President Mike Burkett, PhD and Catherine Stuckey, Career Services Market Development Manager, recently attended the grand opening of the riverfront convention center in the heart of downtown Augusta.
