RCC VP Jason Perry and Deltaville Yachting Center co-owner Onna Grimm celebrate the award recognizing their workforce partnership.

“For many years, Deltaville Yachting Center has been a great partner in offering workforce technician training that leads apprentices to completing their journeymen credential,” says Jason Perry, Rappahannock Community College’s vice president of workforce development.

As a result of its partnership with RCC’s marine trades program, the Deltaville Yachting Center has recently been awarded a Virginia Apprenticeship Council certificate of appreciation for “five years of commitment to the training and successful completion of apprentices.”

The certificate praises the Center’s efforts to “improve workforce development, economic growth, and prosperity of our community and the Commonwealth of Virginia.”

“Skilled technicians are critical to the marine industry, and the credential does a great job of combining on-the-job and classroom training,” declares Perry. He is pictured presenting the VAC certificate to Onna Grimm, co-owner with her husband Lew of Deltaville Yachting Center.
