FREDERICKSBURG, Va. - Joe Wilson, owner and CEO of PermaTreat, and his wife Mary were recently honored at a ribbon cutting ceremony and the unveiling of the sign for the newly-named Wilson Center for Vocational Studies, PermaTreat announced.

The school is part of the Gladys B. Oberle School in Fredericksburg. The new wing, which includes a 6,000 square foot commercial kitchen, was made possible by a donation from the Wilsons.

Also, in late April, over 40 employees of PermaTreat participated in Walk MS, a walk to benefit the National MS Society, which supports research into multiple sclerosis. PermaTreat was a major sponsor of the walk, and raised over $9,000 to help fund research for multiple sclerosis.
