Cheers to 60 YearsA Virtual Celebration

Saturday, Oct. 3, 2020

Help us celebrate our 60th year! Although we can’t be together in person, College of The Albemarle (COA) invites you to join us for a free, live Zoom™ event to be held Saturday, Oct. 3 from 6 to 7 p.m.

We’ll be celebrating with a short program featuring COA President, Dr. Jack Bagwell and COA Foundation Chair, Douglas Gardner; acknowledgment of our Community Partners; an (almost) live auction; a raffle; and, of course, a toast to 60 years of high quality education and community support.
