Gloucester resident Betsy Witt was recently hired as a transition specialist for Rappahannock Community College. In her new position, Witt will work with students who have earned a GED or high school diploma through RCC’s Adult Education and Middle College programs, helping them to ease the transition to college, skills training or employment.
Witt said her hope is to give students the assurance that someone is there to help them through their educational and career journey. "I want them to know they can ask for help with any question or problem they may face as they progress through school," she said.
Witt earned a bachelor’s degree in social work from Christopher Newport University, and has spent 15 years in the fields of social services and mental health.
One of her major accomplishments is helping to develop the Mathews County Children’s Advocacy Center.
