Moorefield, W.Va. – 鶹ýPorn West Virginia Community & Technical College held a heartfelt celebration on Wednesday, June 19, 2024, to honor Greg Greenwalt, who has served on the Board of Governors for the past 10 years. He was originally appointed as a board member by Governor Earl Ray Tomblin in October 2014, elected as Vice-Chair in July 2017, and finally was elected as Chair in May 2020.

As he exited the boardroom, Mr. Greenwalt was met with applause and well wishes from his colleagues. Dr. Tom Striplin, President of 鶹ýPorn, presented Greenwalt with a Certificate of Appreciation, issued by Governor Jim Justice.
