Vinton Mayor Brad Grose says a lot of positive developments are propelling the town forward.

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Donald Trump will deliver the keynote address at Liberty University’s commencement ceremony. Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. provided the details of the May 13 graduation ceremony in a statement Wednesday. Falwell was a close ally to Trump during his campaign and told The Associated Press in January that he’d been asked to lead a presidential task force on higher education reform. President George H.W. Bush was the last president to deliver the Virginia-based university’s keynote address in 1990. Falwell says the school is “incredibly grateful to have President Trump be a part of this historic day.”
