Thank you for hosting us at your incredible facility! Between the logistical and technical support that you provided before and during the event, to offering nutritious meals and refreshments for participants and volunteers, and especially your amazing hospitality -- we were so very fortunate to partner with your team and are so very impressed by what you're doing to support the workforce of today and of tomorrow.

I want to thank everyone who made our holiday luncheon a success. The food keeps getting better and better. I ate some of everything, and it was delicious. Compliments to the chef. Everyone has been telling me how great the food was and how much they enjoy having the luncheon at your facility. Thank you for all you do. Please thank everyone who worked so hard for CIT to have a wonderful lunch.
We hope to be back next year.

The support and investment the elected officials have demonstrated complement the emphasis they have placed into developing a skilled workforce starting at the high school level, networking world class university level engineering programs, and supporting industry changing research at facilities such as CCAM and the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research. This provides us with complete confidence that our only option is success in Virginia.

The City of Danville is thrilled to have KYOCERA SGS Precision Tool locating in Danville’s Cyber Park and to provide employment opportunities for the highly skilled graduates of the Integrated Machining Technology program at the Institute for Advanced Learning & Research. This announcement demonstrates the impact of City and County elected officials, community leaders, and educational institutions all working together for the good of the region.

Working as a team, our staff works within our mission to be a regional catalyst for economic transformation in four key areas: advanced learning, applied research, workforce development and economic development.
- The Honorable Mr. Don Merricks / IALR
I firmly believe that through our efforts, we have positioned the Institute as a prime force in the region and solidified it for the future.
- Jerry Gwaltney / IALR
It is great that House of Delegates Speaker, Bill Howell, appointed Connie Nyholm to the Board of the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research. As a very successful business person, she brings excellent judgment and insight to the table. Connie has a personal knowledge of our region, its strengths and its educational needs. Her entrepreneurial spirit will offer the enthusiasm that is characteristic of the IALR programs and she will hit the road running, as she always does at VIR.
