Greg Troyer always liked science and math, but he wasn’t sure how he’d find the time and money to pursue a four-year bachelor’s degree. Then, while working in construction and taking classes at Central Virginia Community College, Troyer heard about Engineers Produced in Virginia. The program — a partnership between CVCC, the University of Virginia and local businesses — aims to provide Lynchburg-area students with engineering degrees and jobs in the area, all without leaving the Hill City.
