SANFORD - Even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Central Carolina Community College has recorded its second-highest enrollment ever during the Fall 2020 semester.

A total of 5,453 students are currently enrolled for the Fall 2020 semester. The all-time high enrollment was 5,900 students enrolled for the start of the 2019-2020 school year.

"I am so proud of our students for persevering and continuing to push towards their career goals in spite of the current challenges. They are striving to be prepared for the opportunities available and coming to our communities," said CCCC President Dr. Lisa M. Chapman. "This fall enrollment is not only a reflection of our students' determination but also of the dedication of our college faculty and staff. Our college team has worked so hard to ensure that our students still have the opportunity to succeed and I realize every day what an honor it is to serve with them. We are also so thankful for our community commitment to our students through programs like Central Carolina Promise -- that commitment is making a difference."

Ken Hoyle, CCCC Vice President of Student Services, noted of the enrollment: "To have such an enrollment as this during the pandemic is simply amazing. Our staff/faculty have worked so hard, in uncharted waters, to make this enrollment what it is and benefit so many seeking new skills or higher education. This is a huge testament to how the College is viewed by our local communities as 'the answer' when changes in our economy force folks to re-evaluate the current employment status. Whether we are re-training seasoned employees, establishing training for young students, or helping those seeking new employment opportunities, the College is always here to help out and bring new economic life to our workforce."
