Young mom is engineering a way to a good life for herself and her 2-year-old daughter

UVa feeder program allows Germanna students to get a leg up on engineering degree ...


2007 Massaponax High grad Rocio Fernandez loves her 2-year-old daughter--and math.

The young mom says Germanna's new engineering program partnership with UVa will allow her to take care of her little girl and still pursue her dream career.

Called "Produced in Virginia," the program uses the community college system as a pipeline for students into U.Va. for its Bachelor of Science degree in engineering.

Germanna plans to offer an associate of science in engineering that will be aligned with the U.Va. program starting this fall. Details are available here on the Web or by calling Mark Gibson, engineering program director, at 540/834-1063 or e-mailing:
