[Pictured From Left to Right] Jeremy Tuck, Dayton Dunnavant, and Graham Pugh were all May 2015 graduates from Virginia Tech, and all three began their higher education at Southside Virginia Community College as dual enrollment students.
Jeremy, a 2011 graduate of Randolph-Henry High School, took dual enrollment classes at Randolph-Henry during his junior and senior years. He graduated from Virginia Tech with a Bachelor of Science in meteorology and a Bachelor of Arts in geography from the College of Natural Resources and Environment. Jeremy credits the head start on college credits as his key to being able to complete two degrees while at Virginia Tech. He is currently working as a launch intern/staff meteorologist for SpaceX in Cape Canaveral, Florida.
Dayton, a 2011 graduate of Randolph-Henry High School, attended the Governor's School of Southside Virginia and received his Associate of Arts and Sciences degree in general studies from SVCC before transferring to Virginia Tech. He also completed several agribusiness courses at SVCC. Dayton received a Bachelor of Science degree in crop and soil environmental sciences from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Dayton has accepted a sales position with Meherrin Agricultural & Chemical Company in Charlotte Court House, Virginia.
Graham, a 2012 graduate of Randolph-Henry High School, attended the pre-engineering academy at Southside Virginia Community College and received his Associate of Arts and Sciences degree in science from SVCC before transferring to Virginia Tech. Graham received a Bachelor of Science degree cum laude in mechanical engineering from the College of Engineering. He has accepted a position as an engineer with Dominion Virginia Power in Clover, Virginia.
These three young men (and former roommates in Blacksburg, Virginia) are models of success for dual enrollment education opportunities at Southside Virginia Community College.
