In his commencement address, Nolan Browning, PHCC’s vice president for academic and student development services, said, according to a recent analysis by Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, “Between now and 2018 Virginia will need to fill more than 1.3 million job vacancies; 820,000 of those jobs will require a postsecondary credential.â€
He said that in 2008 about 38 percent of Americans aged 25 to 64 had two- or four-year degrees. “According to recent report entitled ‘A Stronger Nation Through Higher Education’ ... we need to increase that 38 percent to 64 percent by year 2025. The rate for Henry County was listed as 21.8 percent while the rate for the state of Virginia was 43 percent.â€
Browning also said, on average, the more education people have, the more money they make. He said the median earnings for full-time, year-round workers 25 and older are $24,964 for someone who didn’t graduate from high school, $32,862 for a high school graduate, $40,796 for a person who has some college or an associate degree, $56,118 for a person with a bachelor’s degree and $75,140 for a person with an advanced degree.
Browning advised the graduates to use their “God-given talentsâ€; have positive attitudes; think critically; create luck by acting on chance opportunities; “keep in mind ... Success is when preparation meets opportunityâ€; give back and help others; and be themselves.

Nolan Browning, vice president for academic and student development services at PHCC, said PHCC offers credit programs (associate degrees and certificates) and noncredit programs. About 70 percent of its students need one or more remedial courses, and PHCC provides those.
PHCC works with other community colleges and with four-year colleges and universities so that PHCC students can transfer their credits and continue their educations, he said.
PHCC also has dual enrollment programs, in which students can be enrolled in high school and PHCC at the same time, and the college tuition they pay is greatly discounted, he said.
He also said that fear is a big barrier to the pursuit of education beyond high school, but most success stories involve people overcoming their fears.
