About the Info Trail
The King and Queen Information Trail (KQInfoTrail) is a community "electronic village," a part of the Technology Opportunities Program, Getting Rural Virginia Connected. Funded by the US Department of Commerce, it was created and maintained as a project of Virginia Tech, the Blacksburg Electronic Village and Virginia Cooperative Extension with the endorsement of local government. The goal of this "electronic village" is to help to solve one critical issue in King and Queen: communication across the County; to connect residents to each other, community businesses and resources and, eventually, the world.
The name was selected after several layers of contests and is the creative idea of Tiffany Wyatt, then a 6th grade student at Lawson-Marriott Elementary School. Tiffany received a Certificate of Recognition and a $100 U.S. Savings Bond for her imaginative effort. A team (the Technology Leadership Team-TLT) of local residents gave direction to the Trail's design and development.
In 2010, after the Info Trail lost funding, Virginia Web Design was handed over the daunting task of preserving and maintaining King and Queen County’s Information Trail. As new citizens of King and Queen County, Randy Melton and Rene Creasy of Virginia Web Design have the opportunity to learn all about the county, it's citizens and it's enterprises and then present new information to the Info Trail with a fresh eye. Virginia Web Design will do it's best to maintain the community spirit of the site while updating the tools that keep it functioning. King and Queen County citizens are encouraged to stay involved in the community forums and to contact the administrators with updates and county information.

"Villagers", as the Info Trail citizens are called, are welcome to contact Randy or Rene at email@example.com with ideas and suggestions for keeping the Info Trail a lively, functional, informative and fun resource for anyone interested in learning more about Virginia's best kept secret: King and Queen County.
