Ronnie Moore, senior vice president and regional executive officer at American National Bank & Trust Company, recently presented a donation to the Southern Virginia Higher Education Center.
Executive Director Dr. Betty H. Adams and Simulation Lab Specialist Cindy Cole accepted the donation on behalf of the Southern Virginia Higher Education Center.
“We are pleased to accept American National Bank’s annual donation and are most grateful for their longstanding support,” Dr. Adams said. “Without advocates like American National, the SVHEC could not operate at its full potential. This year’s donation will be directed to sustaining the operations of one of the SVHEC’s first and most successful signature programs, the Center of Nursing Excellence.”
“American National recognizes the essential role the SVHEC serves for Halifax County and its surrounding areas, and we are excited that these funds will be used to enhance the Center of Nursing Excellence,” said Moore.
The Southern Virginia Higher Education Center Center of Nursing Excellence serves as a regional resource for healthcare education, training and simulation. Since its inception in 2008 the Center of Nursing Excellence has served over 1,000 nursing students and healthcare professionals.
In the past year alone the Center of Nursing Excellence has served 325 new users. Center of Nursing Excellence staff members continue to expand available training by working with regional employers to develop and deliver customized training.
Officials at the Southern Virginia Higher Education Center extended appreciation to American National Bank & Trust Company for its consistent support. In addition to the most recent donation, American National Bank was a Platinum Sponsor for the Southern Virginia Higher Education Center’s 2012 Workforce Forward Forum.
