The State Board for Community Colleges follows a tradition today by holding their bimonthly board meeting in beautiful and historic Abingon, Virginia. Each March, the Chairman of the State Board hosts the meeting in his own home town. This year’s Chairman is Mark R. Graham of Abingdon, director in the law firm of Boucher, Hutton & Graham and a graduate of Emory & Henry College and the University of Richmond School of Law.
Mr. Graham served on the Virginia Highlands board before the State Board, and was an adjunct faculty member at VHCC, so he has first-hand knowledge of the opportunities Virginia’s Community Colleges provide.
Tomorrow’s business meeting will be held at the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center beginning at 9 a.m., which is located on the Virginia Highlands Community College campus.
