Southside Virginia Community College Recognizes K-12 Partners

At the July 2017 Board reception held at the John H. Daniel Campus in Keysville, Dr. Al Roberts recognized the K-12 partners who help to ensure the success of Southside Virginia Community College.  The partnership the college has with the local public school divisions and private schools is great, he said.  "Together, we have lead the Commonwealth in the establishment of dual enrollment programs and continue to be among the state's leaders in participation as well as in the number of college certificates and degrees awarded through dual enrollment.  SVCC is proud to serve as host to the Governor's School of Southside Virginia which provides gifted, highly motivated high school juniors and seniors in the region a challenging, interdisciplinary program of studies," Dr. Roberts said.   

He also noted high school partners host the SVCC Career Coaches who work with students to promote secondary education and training.  There are also successful STEM Camps, professional development activities and teacher recertification courses.  Dr. Roberts thanked all those dedicated to supporting the college mission and their dedication to the well-being of the citizens of Southside Virginia.
