SANFORD - A tour of Central Carolina Community College's Computer Integrated Machining and Veterinary Medical Technology programs highlighted the BlueCross BlueShield of North Carolina Extra Miles Tour, along with Education NC, visit to CCCC on Friday, March 11.

CCCC President Dr. Lisa M. Chapman greeted the visitors before the campus tour.

Kelvin Hunt, CCCC Director of Student Onboarding and Outreach, conducted the tour along with Edwin Thomas (CCCC Machining/Tool & Die, Chair) and Justin Pedley (VMT Animal Facilities Manager).

Afterward, Dr. Chapman and several college leaders shared highlights of the innovative ways the college is serving its students and its communities. Among those in attendance were state Sen. Jim Burgin and state Rep. John Sauls, as well as Jimmy Randolph, CEO of the Sanford Area Growth Alliance.

Following the visit, BCBS made a donation to the CCCC Foundation to support student support.

"The college team thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the BlueCross and BlueShield of North Carolina leadership," said Dr. Chapman. "They spent time with us in Chatham, Harnett, and Lee learning about the strengths and challenges of our communities and the ways in which the college serves, and their engagement during the visits -- as well as their generous donation of dollars in support of our students -- clearly demonstrates their commitment to North Carolina and their support of our work. CCCC is appreciative!"

"We are thankful that BCBS of North Carolina has invested in the students of Central Carolina Community College," said Dr. Emily C. Hare, CCCC Foundation Executive Director. "They understand the importance of education and this investment will help us continue to eliminate financial barriers for our students and allow them to persist on to graduate."
