New Virginia Western Home Page

Information and Educational Technologies (IET) will be launching a Virginia Western website home page with a fresh new look at noon today!  A couple of changes you’ll notice are a different slideshow presentation and the removal of the thumbnail images.  Changing the slideshow allows us to work smarter and share our images with the VWtv system and vice-versa, plus it is swipe friendly on mobile devices.  Removing the thumbnails allows us to promote MyVWCC,  Apply Now, Class Schedule, and the College Catalog buttons.  In addition, the MyVWCC “Survival Guide” has been renamed to “Navigate MyVWCC” to correspond with the new Navigate advising process being implemented.

You will need to refresh your browser or possibly clear your browser cache for the home page to be properly displayed.

As always, please contact the Help Desk (857-7354) if you have any questions or need assistance.

Achievement Day – Employee Recognition Event – Get Your Free Sundae!


Employee Achievement Day

Natural Science Center

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

Remember when we were growing up our parents always taught us that you shouldn’t brag about yourself because it wasn’t socially acceptable? During Employee Achievement Day we are going to break the rules and get caught red handed bragging not only about ourselves but our peers as well! Take the time to brag about your peer and don’t forget let’s not be modest and share with us your achievements on the “Caught Red Handed Bragging Board”! Virginia Western has a lot to brag about their employees so let’s fill up this board! The completed recognition board will be displayed at the schools and divisions throughout the college on a rotating monthly schedule over the next year. Be sure to check it out!

Achievement Day is also a time to recognize that you tirelessly serve college customers each and every day; therefore, on this day our presidential staff and deans want to serve you… ice cream! Our ice cream scoopers will provide you with the base of a sundae for you to make on your own with a variety of condiments that will be available to build your perfect sundae!

Out of our ice cream scoopers, who will be the super scooper? Will it be Dr. Sandel, Dr. Wilmer, Cheryl Miller, Debbie Yancey, Amy Anguiano, Lori Baker, John Anderson or Carole Graham? Make sure to recognize these “scoopers” by completing a red hand in their honor! We have a lot to brag about these extraordinary employees!
