“This adds confirmation to what we already know,” said Dr. Charlie White, VHCC interim president. “Students at Virginia Highlands receive an incredible value. Not only do they save thousands of dollars on their education, they benefit from an award-winning experience. Virginia Highlands is second-to-none when it comes to the instruction and educational opportunities students enjoy.”
