Paying it Forward
When Maria Chapman started at PVCC in fall 2011, she thought she wanted to be a social worker but reconsidered. "If I became a social worker, I would be helping adults," she reasoned. "And while it's never too late to change somebody's life, I felt like I could help people more when they're younger, in the classroom.

Advancing His Career
Jason Hite graduated from Waynesboro High School in 1994 and joined the Marines, working as a hydraulic engineer. When his service ended, he returned home. "College was something I always wanted, but I didn't think I would actually go," he says. "I never thought I was smart enough, and I didn't think I had the time."
PVCC proved Jason wrong. He enrolled in classes as a part-time student in the Electronics and Computer Technology degree program at PVCC in fall 2009 and began working full time at the University of Virginia in an apprenticeship program for electronics. MORE »
