Germanna one of six Virginia community colleges helping those just short of obtaining degrees

Former Stafford County Supervisor Kandy Hilliard is about to finish up her degree at GCC. Germanna is one of six community colleges in Virginia recently chosen to participate in Project Win-Win, a program aimed at increasing the number of people with college degrees. The project seeks to award degrees to people who already qualify for an associate degree but never received a degree of any kind. It also seeks to identify people who need nine credits or fewer to earn an associate degree, which community colleges award. The goal is to spur former students to finish their degrees and to help some of the roughly 1 million Virginians with college credits but no degree obtain one. Hilliard is a Board Member at HOME, Political Print Consultant at Creative Color and Assistant Director at The Childcare Network, She’s accomplished much without a degree and feels the sky’s the limit with one.
