Meet Katrina

Katrina Staggs

Hometown: Louisa, Virginia

Major: I am obtaining two degrees from PVCC, my first was in Nursing (ADN) (May 2019) and my second is in General Education (December 2019)

How PVCC is helping her reach her goals: "PVCC offered an awesome support system to meet all my needs and working in the work-study program really helped me to learn about all of the resources available."

What she likes best about the Veterans Services at PVCC: "Having a dedicated veteran’s space really helped me transition into school and have somewhere to go where there were other veterans to talk to. Jackie’s office and the work-study student she had when I first signed up for my benefits was great and they walked me through the whole process."

What was her experience like at PVCC: "I really want to highlight the contributions of everyone I met during my years at PVCC. The teachers are awesome and don’t get the credit that they deserve, as well as all the other support services here. It is an incredible team and I am proud to be a PVCC alumni! I also want to highlight the incredible family support I have received from my two daughters and husband! They have suffered through long hours of me completing homework and studying and have been there every step of the way!"
