HILLSVILLE (WSLS 10) - A new lab in Carroll County earns an honor that is a first for this part of Virginia.
Carroll County High School's STEM lab, which stands for science, technology, engineering and math, brought home the "Highest Achievement" award from the Virginia Association of Counties.
Carroll County leaders say this is the first time a southwest Virginia county has received that award.
The STEM lab beat out 95 other entries from across the state.
The county will offer a workshop in November for other counties interested in starting a STEM lab of their own.
