The Roanoke Valley Campus recently presented the Distinguished Community Employer award to the Salem VA Medical Center (VAMC) for their continued partnership with the campus. In recent years, the VA Medical Center has employed a number of the campus' business and medical graduates, has provided medical and accounting adjunct instructors, and has been a consistent participant in the campus career fairs.
The medical center is operated by the U.S Department of Veteran Affairs and serves veterans throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia for psychiatric care and southwestern Virginia for medical and surgical care. The Salem VAMC also has community based outpatient clinics in Danville, Lynchburg, Staunton, Tazewell, and Wytheville.
The director of the center, Dr. Miguel Lapuz, accepted the award presented by campus director Ron Bradbury, career center director Kristal Bushong, and business chair Mathew George. Also present was a recent bachelor of business administration-management graduate, Tim Tuttle, who is currently completing a two year leadership training program at the Medical Center. His current supervisor, James Kelly , the director of logistics, said that he was impressed with the skills and knowledge Tim had and would be glad to hire more graduates of his caliber.
