The campus for Piedmont Virginia Community College (PVCC) in Stanardsville is almost complete.
The 14,000-square-foot second floor of the Greene County Library is in the process of being transformed into five classrooms and two community meeting rooms with a few extra common areas for students. The college has raised more than $900,000 to help build, furnish, and run the new "Eugene Giuseppe Center."
Anita Showers with PVCC said "We launched a pretty intensive fundraising initiative to raise the money to build out the second floor. The citizens of Greene County have wanted this for their region."
Greene County offered PVCC use of the space at the cost of $1 every year for a 25-year lease. Fall classes are scheduled to start August 27.
