Kilmarnock Center hosts RCC Convocation

Rappahannock Community College’s April 30 Convocation, held at the new Kilmarnock Center, made use of several local businesses to provide breakout sessions as well as refreshments. Steve Kancianic of Yours Truly Photography gave a short course on digital photography, and fitness counselor Suzanne Best led two yoga sessions; also, the Carwash Café catered a delicious breakfast and lunch. Kicking off the afternoon seminars was a line dancing celebration in the Chesapeake Commons parking lot, organized by Warsaw Campus receptionist Shirley Johnson.
