School Notes:

In 1962, a steering committee composed of area citizens was organized to obtain support for a college in Wytheville. After approval by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia and the General Assembly, the Wythe County-owned Simmerman Building was chosen as the first site of the college. Wytheville Community College welcomed its first students in September, 1963, as a two-year branch of Virginia Polytechnic Institute. During its first year of operation, the college enrolled 107 students and employed five full-time faculty members. Wytheville Community College commits to a student-centered environment by providing programs and courses in occupational-technical education, college transfer education, general education, developmental education, distance education, continuing education, and workforce development. Wytheville Community College is approved by the State Board for Community Colleges and by the Virginia Community College System.
