Lunenburg County representatives, employers and Virginia officials celebrated a milestone April 30, being the first county in the region, and the seventh county in Virginia, to achieve a Work Ready Community status.

Speakers at the event, which was held at the Benchmark Community Bank’s conference center in the Town of Kenbridge, included Lunenburg County Administrator Tracy Gee, Lunenburg County Public Schools (LCPS) Superintendent Charles Berkley Jr. and Lunenburg County Planner Glenn Millican.

The Work Ready Community status is established by the ACT, the same organization that developed the ACT standardized test.
