Annual Recognition Dinner

  • Dr. Ralls with Guests
  • Eileen Collins
  • Educational Foundation Dinner

Each year Northern Virginia Community College hosts the Educational Foundation’s annual signature fundraising event.

This year the theme was "Women in Technology". The guest speaker, Col. Eileen Collins was NASA’s first female shuttle commander. She also got her start at a community college.

NOVA honored three prominent women who are leaders in the field of technology, and are paving the way for our female students pursuing careers in STEM:
  • Teresa Carlson, AMAZON Web Services
  • Bobbie Kilberg, Northern Virginia Technology Council
  • Zuzana Steen, Micron Technologies

The program included guest speakers and recognition of students, alumni, faculty and staff for their contributions to the College, and donors for their continued service.


Thank you to our sponsors who made the 22nd Annual NOVA Foundation Dinner a success.
