Blue Ridge President Dr. Peter Checkovich, who welcomed county officials in the morning before returning for the afternoon session featuring legislators, updated participants on the school's evolving role with Proctor and Gamble's hiring process.

"They are looking for a couple of different kinds of students- if you have any kind of mechanical or electric background and are proficient in those, they are interested in talking to you. If you don't but want to get training, we can help, because Blue Ridge is their training partner. They are interested in about four of our programs to provide the skills to run their production lines," Checkovich said.
Some employees may be hired this summer as part of a "slow startup, but by the fall of 2017 they should be ready to open their facility," he said.
"They are going to start with about 300 folks, and then ramp up to 700 employees by 2019. A lot of them will be technicians," Checkovich said.

Blue Ridge Community and Technology College will have to absorb a 4 percent reduction in funding, Pete Checkovich, president of BRCTC, said Tuesday in a telephone interview.

"We might have to cut back services for students, and tuitions and fees might have to go up next year," he said.
Checkovich said the cut would amount to about $186,000.
"That might not sound like a lot, but this is the third or fourth year we've been cut," he said.
"I understand there has to be a No. 9, but make it respectable," Checkovich said. "We're not even close."
He already has his staff researching where budget cuts might be made. They will be working on a plan to address the cuts this week, he said.
"The cut was not a surprise, although the 4 percent was," Checkovich said.
