An email from Laurel Ridge Community College confirms that the partnership between Laurel Ridge Community College and Shenandoah County Public Schools (SCPS) has been recognized.

The collaboration was awarded first place in the Virginia School Boards Association’s (VSBA) Excellence in Workforce Readiness Award.

The award recognizes the Certified Nursing Association (CNA) Phlebotomy program’s success.

Eleven students attending the Triplett Tech program completed the CNA training and certification followed by completing a phlebotomy course this past spring.

SCPS’s supervisor of career pathway and technical education Todd Lynn was asked to help fill a need by Valley Health who faced a shortage of patient care technicians.

Lynn in turn reached out to Laurel Ridge Community College to provide  a phlebotomy instructor.

Lynn added that the award shows the success of the community coming together to fill a need in the area.
