Recognize the names of these current or former Virginia Western students? Did you help them take a step further in overcoming life obstacles and achieving their academic goals?

Each of these students is deeply thankful for the support they received from the Virginia Western community. We helped them #MakeCollegePossible — which is the theme of the Educational Foundation’s new fundraising campaign to benefit the Community College Access Program (CCAP) and general scholarship needs.

Beginning Nov. 28, on #GivingTuesday, you’ll see video stories featuring MaLora, Yadav, Cody and Alexie popping up on the College’s Facebook page. You’ll hear them express — in their words — the significant impact that Virginia Western has made on their lives.

We hope you’ll share these videos and help the Educational Foundation spread the word about #MakeCollegePossible.

Not on Facebook? You can watch a 10-minute compilation of these stories here:

We all know that this busy time of year it’s especially easy to lose sight of the community college’s mission. We hope these videos help recharge your focus, and affirm that Virginia Western is a big part of what makes the Roanoke Valley a beautiful community.

With sincere thanks,

The Educational Foundation staff (Amanda, Carole, Carolyn, Wanda and Jill)
