More than 450 supporters attended a gala “celebrating 50 years of progress and promise” of Virginia’s Community Colleges. The event, held recently at the Richmond Marriott, was highlighted by reflections from dignitaries such as Governor Terry McAuliffe and former state Secretary of Education Anne Holton, as well as a tribute to founding chancellor Dr. Dana B. Hamel and Governor Mills E. Godwin Jr.
 
The 50th anniversary gala raised $2.4 million to support programs of the Virginia Foundation for Community College Education.
