FREDERICKSBURG, Va., 12/12/2022 – As Chairman for Stafford County Economic Development Authority (EDA), Joel Griffin led the $750,000 Investment into Germanna Community College for its support in bringing an expanded, permanent site to the county. The check was presented during a check presentation ceremony on November 29.

“The Stafford EDA made a commitment to support Germanna’s expansion in Stafford years ago,” said Griffin. “It is a pleasure to see this day come to fruition. With this expansion, Germanna will continue to expand its services to Stafford citizens, business and residents across our region, Northern Virginia, and the Commonwealth.”

Griffin said during Tuesday’s ceremony that the EDA “has really focused on workforce development. Germanna is a tremendous partner in that initiative. The nursing program and cybersecurity program Germanna offers to our community is first class –and I don’t mean for our region I mean across the nation. These are jobs that support our national security. I think COVID has brought to the forefront nurses and what they do every single day. So on behalf of the EDA, I’m very proud to represent to say that we are delighted about this partnership. We hope to see many more years of collaboration and work.”
