LURAY, July 11 — The Page County Public Forum invites the community to come out to Jenkins Hall (behind Walmart) next Tuesday night to tour the local facility of Laurel Ridge Community College and hear about the programs available from LRCC’s president, Dr. Kim Blosser.

The Page County native and Stanley resident will lead the discussion on the college’s programs, including new offerings such as a heavy equipment operator’s license, HVAC certification and a physical therapy assistant program. Following the open discussion with attendees, Dr. Blosser will offer a tour of the new facility.

The event marks the third of three recent events focused on education presented by the Page County Public Forum — a non-profit, grass-roots organization aimed at providing free, open informational forums and panel discussions about issues that affect broad populations in the county.

“A Night at Jenkins Hall” will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 19. The 13,000-square-foot building sits on an 8-acre site and contains five classrooms, a computer lab, a student commons area, a small conference room, a testing center and employee space, as well as a rooftop terrace. 

The $4.7 million project marks the first permanent structure that the regional community college has built in Page County. Classes began in January 2021 after LFCC’s Luray-Page County Center moved from its North Hawksbill Street home in December 2020.

Russell A. and Rodney A. Jenkins and their family were honored at a special event in May 2019 for donating the acreage at their development, Luray Landing, for the building that now bears their family’s name.

“Please plan to join us and please help us get the invitation out to everyone in our community,” said Nancy Boyer, co-chair for the Page County Public Forum.
