Valley College executive director Beth Gardner says more than 20,000 people have graduated from the college in the past 20 years, and once again, she says she is proud of the students.
"Some might not have thought that they would see this moment, but you're here now and we're glad you're here," she said. "Go forth in the world with new goals and new accomplishments."

Beth Gardner, executive director of Valley College's Beckley campus, says a recent survey done by the school indicates some of the top reasons for releasing employees of their duties include lack of dependability, poor job performance and lack of teamwork skills.
"Other top reasons include absenteeism and abuse and neglect," Gardner said.
Gardner said even though many people have the basic skills for employment, many of them lack the personal skills it takes to get a job or create job security in their current position.
"We have created a two-part workshop," she said. "The first part is to help you get a job and the second part is to be able to keep your job."
Those wanting to attend can take just one part of the workshop, Gardner added.
"That's the versatility of this two-part workshop," she said.
"We are hoping most people take advantage of both parts of the workshop because there is so much useful information."
Gardner says research indicates that health care facilities across the region continue to experience significant levels of demand for multiple occupational categories with up to 1,750 new and replacement openings annually.
"We felt the need was there for this type of workshop and training, so we teamed up with Region 1 Workforce West Virginia to be able to offer the workshop throughout the region," she said.
Gardner says there is no cost to attend.
"You must pre-register," she said.
The deadline to pre-register is Monday, March 23.
"Seating for these workshops is limited," she said.
Career tips, professionalism and work ethic will all be part of the workshop training, according to Gardner.
The first part of the workshop teaches the value of a job, how to make a good impression in the interview process, what questions to expect in the interview, nine interview disqualifiers, 10 things you should never say in an interview, 10 things an interviewer wants to see in a prospective employee, resume writing tips and handouts and how to properly follow up after an interview.
The second part defines "work ethic," examines how much income a person needs to live, how to create job security, development of a good work ethic, the rewards of having a good attitude, communicating with professionalism, the top 10 ways to get fired and why employees should not take their jobs for granted.
"We want to help people become the ultimate employee," Gardner said.
Planning the upcoming workshop for Workforce West Virginia are Palma Stafford, left, Stephanie Allen, and Beth Gardner.
