Introduction of Dr. Ruth Hendrick and Dr. Joey Fronheiser

 
Dr. Capps introduced Dr. Ruth Hendrick as the new Vice President of Workforce Development and Continuing Education and stated she began working at CVCC in January of this year. Dr. Capps stated Dr. Hendrick has an impeccable and rich background as she has been involved in Workforce for the majority of her career. He stated she previously worked at Virginia Western Community College serving as the Coordinator of Workforce Development Services. 
Dr. Hendrick stated Workforce encompasses a huge umbrella. She stated she believed that Workforce should enhance a region’s economic prosperity and global competiveness using a number of tools. She stated successful initiatives require a rapid response from workforce professionals who facilitate partnerships from business, schools, employers, and industries. Dr. Hendrick stated she saw workforce services in the community college as the primary link to both the business community and the community in general. She stated at CVCC, the academic divisions are highly responsive to businesses and their employment needs but Workforce has daily contact with business and industry and can serve as a conduit to bring the Region’s changing needs back to the College by responding quickly and appropriately.
Dr. Hendrick reported one reason that drew her to work at CVCC (besides Dr. Capps) was its great Workforce reputation of being highly involved and being respected by the business community. CVCC is the trainer choice of the business community, and the Region 2000 alliances make it a great environment for moving Workforce Development forward. She stated in this area, Workforce Development includes not only the career pathways but also customized training and responding for individual business needs and community programming which is an area that will be looked at for expansion.
Dr. Hendrick stated she looked forward to being here at CVCC.  
Dr. Capps also introduced Dr. Joey Fronheiser who is the Dean of Institutional Effectiveness & Strategic Planning. He stated he invited Dr. Fronheiser to attend the Board meetings to keep everyone apprised of CVCC’s SACS’ Reaccreditation progress.
Mr. Lamb welcomed them both.

They presented drawings, floor plans, materials, furniture, and a probable cost summary for the proposed renovations to the Student Center. The Board engaged in many questions and much discussion.
