These innovators included the Virginia Supreme Court and the Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy, Prince William County, the Online Academy, Blue Ridge Community College, the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research, and the nonprofit healthcare system, Centra Health in Lynchburg.
