Posting to the Daily Bulletin

Do you have information to share with the college community? Post your notices to the Daily Bulletin!

Postings should be college related with the exception of information included in Friday's bulletin posts, "Community Events" and "For Sale/Buy/Trade/Free." (see note below about different posting instructions for these posts)

Your postings could include:

  • Professional development opportunities
  • New employees to your office (even if they aren't new to the college)
  • Personal professional development milestones (publication of a book, journal articles, awards, etc)
  • Congratulations to an individual or team for completion of a project, task or event
  • Business process updates or changes
  • Birth or death announcements
  • Retirement announcements
  • And much more!

A few things to remember:

  • Postings should be short and to the point (think about the basics that would get your attention)
  • No graphics or tables (the bulletins are emails; graphics and tables take up server space)
  • A new posting must be submitted for each day you want the post to run (the program doesn't allow multiple date selection so three posting dates means you submit the post new three times - don't worry, you can copy and paste)
  • If a posting is not for the next day, include the run date at the top of the message (ex. Please run on 11/30)
  • Postings must be submitted no later than 4 p.m. the day prior (postings submitted on Friday will run on Monday)
  • No bulletins are sent on Saturday, Sunday or any day the college is closed
  • Send Community Event or For Buy/Sale/Trade/Free postings to publicrelations@virginiawestern.edu

Carol Childress Scholarship Fund

A few weeks ago we shared the sad news that our colleague Carol Childress passed away unexpectedly. This is a major loss not only for Information Technology Services (ITS in Richmond), but for many around our system since Carol had a unique way of reaching out and touching everyone.

Many of you dealt with Carol in your daily activities through her assistance with the enterprise systems, or various other systems. Carol was close to fulfilling 30 years of state service, having worked at Virginia Western in the "Data Center/Computing Center" and then with ITS at Greenfield until her death. She was truly dedicated to the Virginia Community College System, and kept ITS grounded in our desire to serve “Students First.” Carol maintained a high standard in her professional life and it was reflected daily in her actions with everyone she came into contact with. She has set a high standard that will be difficult to replace, and will truly be missed.

To remember and honor Carol ITS has setup a scholarship fund. Carol generously supported the mission of the VCCS through her years of service and also generously supported the Virginia Foundation for Community College Education (VFCCE) through the CVC Campaign – this is our opportunity to give back in her name!

If you wish to contribute to this fund, you can send checks to the address below. Checks are payable to the VFCCE and designate the contribution to the Carol Childress Scholarship Fund. You can also donate on-line at www.vccs.edu/giving/. Click on the “Change a Life – Donate Now” button, and then select the Carol Childress Scholarship Fund from the drop down box!
101 N 14th Street, 15th Floor
