Gaither Wins Distinguished Alumni Award

The Virginia Western Community College Educational Foundation named Dr. Brenda L. Hale (’89) and Joe Gaither (’77) recipients of the College’s 2023 Distinguished Alumni Award. Hale and Gaither received the award in a campus ceremony on April 27, 2023.

Carole Tarrant’s article on the VWCC website has the full details. One of the highlights from the article is this quotation from Ken Bolton.

“Kenneth J. Belton, a member of the Virginia Western Community College Educational Foundation Board of Directors, wrote in his nominating letter that Gaither is “well-known for his leadership, dependability to get things done, his integrity, moral character, problem-solving, knowledge, spiritual and wise counsel, positive attitude and teamwork.”

The Distinguished Alumni Award is only one of several honors that Joe will receive this year. More later, as things develop.
