On August 28, Virginia Secretary of Education Anne Holton visited Rappahannock Community College’s Warsaw Campus, where she met with several administrators and faculty members before touring the campus.

The purpose of the visit was to discuss RCC’s dual enrollment partnerships with area high schools, including the available courses and programs; state funding for both dual enrollment and higher education in general; and programs the college offers that lead to EMS work, nursing, and other licensed professions.

Dr. Elizabeth Crowther, RCC’s president, declared that the college was honored by the visit of Secretary Holton and her special assistant for communications, Eric Steigleder.

“Their interest is keen in knowing what our challenges are, so that they can help us serve this region,” says Crowther. She adds, “Secretary Holton was helpful and engaging, spending important time with RCC’s faculty and students.”
