Grace Ellison

Where are you now? Virginia Tech Transportation Institute



My name is Grace Ellison and I am a second year ACCE student at New River Community College. I have been working at Virginia Tech Transportation Institute as a Heavy Vehicle Simulator Technician since October of 2022. Without the ACCE program and our amazing sponsors I would not be the person I am today. Their dedication to the program and to the success of the students of NRCC allows for a prominent change in the future of Giles county. I have learned that the ACCE program not only allows students with an opportunity to further our education but also instills in us, through service, the incredible value of putting others needs above our own. The ACCE program not only educates the future of Giles County but seeks to teach us that above all else we are to support others in the same way that our sponsors support us.
