SANFORD -- Duke Energy is an important supporter of Central Carolina Community College's programs.
Duke Energy Foundation has made its second $50,000 contribution for the Central Carolina Works public-private initiative.
In 2014, the Duke Energy Foundation awarded a $233,950 grant to the college for high technology workforce training and $50,000 for CCW.
"We're thrilled with the success of the Central Carolina Works program, and we're proud to be stepping up with another round of funding. Educational opportunity is key to developing our future workforce and the prosperity of the communities we serve," said Indira Everett, Duke Energy district manager.
CCW enables high school juniors and seniors to enroll, tuition-free, in college credit courses through Central Carolina Community College that also apply toward their high school diploma. By the time they graduate from high school, they could earn a certificate and have a jump-start on their career or college education.
CCW is an educational initiative by a consortium including Central Carolina Community College, education (Chatham County Schools, Harnett County Schools, and Lee County Schools), business, industry, and community leaders.
CCW funds the placement of career and college advisors in each of the public high schools in Chatham, Harnett, and Lee counties. These advisors work one-on-one with students to help them take advantage of the state-funded Career and College Promise (CCP) program.
"We are grateful for Duke Energy and all those who are supporting the efforts to increase the educational attainment and workforce skills development of those in our communities," said Dr. T.E. Marchant, CCCC president. "It strengthens the fabric of our communities when we work together to provide excellent academic and workforce training that helps residents to build more prosperous lives."

Contributions to the Central Carolina Works initiative can be made to the CCCC Foundation. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization affiliated with, but independent of, the college. It receives donations of money and equipment on behalf of CCCC and uses them to promote the educational mission of the college and assist students through scholarships and grants. For information on giving to the Foundation, contact Emily Hare, executive director of the CCCC Foundation, 919-718-7230 or email@example.com.
