As the past two months have flown by at a rapid pace, my focus has shifted from learning the basics of my new role to learning more about the City of Danville, Pittsylvania County and Halifax County.

So far, I’ve taken weekly trips across our service region to meet stakeholders, learn about their educational needs, and also to enjoy the beauty of the region. I visited Virginia International Raceway just last week to meet their leadership and learn about their facilities. Southern Virginia has incredible sights that I am excited to discover.

Wallace is the president of Danville Community College.
