Medical school officially coming...

It's official! The new Virginia Tech-Carilion medical college is coming to Roanoke. The state legislature just passed a spending package that approved the funding for construction of the school. See to read the full story.

A new medical college in Roanoke is great news for our local economy and will create high-paying jobs for our residents. It also commits Tech to Roanoke, a relationship we should take advantage of with a continuing partnership.

A lot of hard work went into securing the necessary funding for the medical college, and our delegation to the state legislature deserves a lot of credit for their efforts.
