SANFORD - "First Class Opportunity. Leading Workforce Partner."

That was the message delivered by Central Carolina Community College President Dr. Lisa M. Chapman and college staff to area legislators during a Legislative Delegation Breakfast on Tuesday, Jan. 25, at the Dennis A. Wicker Civic & Conference Center.

Attending either in person or virtually were the area legislative delegation, along with business and industry partners, area economic development officials, as well as members of the CCCC Board of Trustees and various college staff.

The presentation included a show of various partnerships - K-12, University, Community, State-Level, and Regional - as well as Local Industry & Economic Development Partners and New Industry & Economic Development Partners.

Officials also learned several "worthy investment" facts:

  • For every dollar invested in CCCC, people in North Carolina will receive a cumulative value of $7.40 in benefits. The benefits of this investment will occur for as long as CCCC's Fiscal Year 2019-20 students remain employed in the state workforce.
  • One out of every 32 jobs in the CCCC Service Area is supported by the activities of CCCC and its students.
  • Annually, the students' investment in CCCC has an average internal rate of return of 24.4 percent, which is impressive compared to the U.S. stock market's 30-year average rate of return of 10.6 percent.
