Dennis Barker, a Charlotte County native and Randolph-Henry High School graduate, earned an Associate of Applied Science in Administration of Justice from Southside Virginia Community College.
Since graduating from SVCC, Dennis has worked for the South Boston Police Department in both patrol and investigations and is currently a Patrol Lieutenant with the department.
Choosing SVCC allowed Dennis to attend classes locally and the opportunity to be employed while a student. He says, "Taking advantage of local resources to continue your education provides increased career opportunities at a fraction of the cost of larger four-year institutions." Dennis' children have followed in his footsteps by attending SVCC, also reaping the benefits of quality educations at greatly reduced costs.
