Canine on Campus
Members of the Virginia State Police recently visited  Assistant Professor Alfonzo Seward's Administration of Justice class.  After speaking to the class, Trooper Will Blount, an SVCC graduate, and his dog, Titan, show their skills at tracking and stopping suspects on the loose. Titan, a German Shepherd, and Blount make up a team that is on-call at all times to assist the VSP in fighting crime.  Commands are given to Titan in German since most suspects do not speak that language.  
Mid-Atlantic Broadband Renews Scholarship
In support of students furthering their education at SVCC in a STEM-H field, Mid-Atlantic Broadband Communities Corporation announced that it is continuing a scholarship established last year.  Tad Deriso, MBC President and CEO, says, "These students are the future workforce of Southern Virginia and the knowledge and skills they are learning in STEM-H programs at these community colleges are in high demand for companies located in Southern Virginia and those looking to relocate to the region."  Mid-Atlantic also supports Central Virginia, Patrick Henry, and Danviille Community Colleges.
