The Central Carolina Community College Foundation has launched its Annual Fund Drive to raise money for student scholarships and emergency assistance, provide grants to faculty and staff for needs not covered by state and local budgets, and other uses. In 2011, the Foundation awarded scholarships to 180 students, among them Laser and Photonics Technology student James Strickland (center), of Dunn. At the Foundation's 2011 Scholarship Luncheon, he was able to meet former CCCC Vice President Ron Miriello (left), whose family established the Samuel R. Miriello Memorial Scholarship, and Laser and Photonics Technology lead instructor Gary Beasley, representing the Laser and Photonics Technology Scholarship donors. The 2012 Drive kicked off on Feb. 8 and will continue through the rest of the year. For more information on contributing to the Foundation or for a copy of its annual report, contact Emily Hare, Foundation associate director, at (919) 718-7230 or by email at
