We are delighted to present “A Brief History of Virginia Highlands Community College.” This work was primarily completed by English Professor Helen Wilson (retired) with assistance from the Washington County Public Schools, the Historical Society of Washington County, the Washington County Public Library, the faculty and staff of Virginia Highlands who responded with their memories and editorial comments, Public Relations/Marketing Specialist Anne Dunham, and with special thanks to the staff of the College’s Library and Learning Lab.

As a first effort, despite all our care, we will undoubtedly discover omissions and errors. You, our readers, can be of great assistance to the College by providing any needed additions and/or corrections to: The Office of the President, Virginia Highlands Community College, P.O. Box 828, Abingdon, Virginia or to

We trust that you will enjoy this Brief History. We look forward to hearing from you and to future editions.
