Thanks to all of you for your kind expressions, gifts, cards, flowers, and most especially for being such wonderful people.  I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work at Virginia Western for 23 years. It was a life changing experience, not only for me, but also for many of the students and others I have been able to interact with.  I thank God every day for allowing me to be able to retire in good health.  I pray for continued blessings for all of you and that you too will one day be able to enjoy the wonderful world of retirement.   Again, thanks!

Please turn off projectors!

As the Media Geeks have upgraded classrooms with the new touch screens, we've started noticing a serous problem:  Projectors are being left on!  Please remember that leaving a projector running when it is not needed is costing us a significant amount of money in replacement bulbs ($300 each) and electricity.

We are asking for your help.   When you turn off the computer, please ALSO touch the "Shutdown" button on the touch panel, and confirm that you want to shutdown by touching the word "Yes" when prompted.  This will turn off the projector. Simply turning off the computer results in a "black" screen, but this is not the same as the projector being off.

The Media Geeks are asking that you visually confirm that you have turned off the projector by looking at the projector and confirming that  the only colored light on the projector is amber.   If you see a green light next to the word "Lamp" on the projector, it is likely that the projector lamp is still on.

Thank you all for your help!
