CCC&TI hosts it Annual Fund Campaign Kickoff Luncheon
On Wednesday, March 8, the Foundation of Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute hosted its Annual Fund Campaign kickoff luncheon at the J.E. Broyhill Civic Center in Lenoir.
The event was attended by community leaders, campaign volunteers, and college faculty and administrators, and marks the beginning of fundraising efforts for the Foundation’s Annual Fund Drive. Peg Broyhill, Chair of the Foundation’s Board of Directors, opened the event by welcoming the crowd of supporters and announcing the goal for this year’s campaign as $405,000, the highest to date for the Annual Fund Drive. Meanwhile, the college's faculty and staff members launched their portion of the campaign in February, and so far, have raised a record-high of more than $42,000. The Foundation's priorities for this year's campaign include funding for scholarships, the Dream Award Program, student aid, athletics, and other academic support. The fundraising efforts among employees and students will continue throughout the spring.
