Letter from the President of CVCC
July 1, 2010
This is the last CVCC Strategic Long Range Plan that will be developed
during my tenure with the college. Over the years I have thoroughly
enjoyed helping the college move ahead with new facilities, renovations,
new programs, off-campus centers, online courses, and fund-raising. We
continue serving individuals, the business community, and economic
development initiatives in the college service area very successfully.
This Plan, developed in the midst of one of the worst recessions to hit
the United States, still moves the college ahead. We have much to be
proud looking to see how far we have come and looking forward to
envision where we want the college to go. The planning process, although
in the background, helps drive the college toward its agreed upon goals
I would like to thank everyone who served on the Planning Committee
over the years for your time and effort on behalf of the college.
Together we have focused the direction of the college in ways to
benefit all concerned. We have much to be proud of.
As I leave the college, I am pleased to say that in many ways it is in
better condition than when I came. That is important to me and
advantageous to the college, the community it serves, and the
Commonwealth of Virginia.
I wish those who take over the leadership of the college all the best,
and I recommend that long range planning continue to be an activity that
My best to everyone concerned.
