This year is full of exciting new chapters for New River Community College graduate Emily Woolwine. In December she received an associate degree; this year she landed a new job and will begin classes at Radford University.

Woolwine, of Blacksburg, graduated from NRCC in December with an associate degree in accounting. In January, she began a job with Moog Inc., in the accounting department working as a fixed asset accountant.
