The resolution voted on by NOVA’s College Board follows:
The Northern Virginia Community College Board, in recognition of the Honorable Mark Warner’s personal leadership and tireless dedication to significantly expand investments in Virginia Community College facilities statewide while serving as Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia, does hereby approve the naming of the CA Building at Northern Virginia Community College’s Annandale Campus in his honor. Henceforth, the facility will officially be known as the Mark Warner Student Services Building.
Among those to deliver remarks at the ceremony are NOVA College Board Chair Michael Wooten; NOVA President Scott Ralls; Hon. Belle Wheelan, President, Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges and former president of NOVA; Hon. Charles J. Colgan
former president pro tempore of the Senate of Virginia and Hon. Mark Warner.
Mark R. Warner was elected to the U.S. Senate in Nov. 2008 and reelected in Nov. 2014. He serves on the Senate Finance, Banking, Budget, and Intelligence committees. During his time in the Senate, he has worked with Republicans and Democrats to cut red tape, increase government performance and accountability, and promote private sector innovation and job creation. He has fought for military men and women and veterans, and worked to find bipartisan, balanced solutions to address the country's debt and deficit. Previously, he served as Governor of Virginia from 2002 to 2006. When he left office in 2006, Virginia was ranked as the best state for business, the best managed state, and the best state in which to receive a public education.
