Principal Officer

Mrs. Cherie N. Carl

BIO

19 years experience working in management in higher education and 12 years with Virginia's community colleges. Experience working with strategic planning in leadership positions in the business sector and within the commonwealth of Virginia.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

" When it comes to the first two years of college, earning a career certificate, or getting valuable training for a better job or going back into workforce, the best opportunity is at RCC. With your help RCC will continue to be the best opportunity for students in our region to get educated for a better life. Your support creates opportunities for students of all ages and puts more skilled professionals/workers into our community. Your gift can also benefit you by lowering your taxes. A gift of stock shares (owned for more than a year) qualifies for the same deduction as a cash gift, while avoiding tax on the capital gain and preserving your cash for other uses. So, however you give and whatever you give to RCC, our entire community benefits."
