Piedmont Community College’s Foundation has been awarded a $30,000 grant from the Duke Energy Foundation for the Kirby Rebirth: Upstairs-Uptown project. The grant funds will support the renovation of the second floor of the Kirby Cultural Arts Complex and a grand opening to be held once the renovation is complete.

“Duke Energy is proud to support the Kirby Rebirth. The project will bring a new vitality to uptown Roxboro, and the renovated space will attract new opportunities and serve as a catalyst for continued development,” said Tanya Evans, District Manager, Duke Energy.

The Duke Energy grant brings the total raised for the Kirby Rebirth to $362,888 to date. The PCC Foundation has a $500,000 goal for the project, which will create over 7,000 square feet of new space in the Kirby Cultural Arts Complex. The space will feature large rehearsal and meeting rooms, studios, gallery space, a terrace and an elevator to the second level.

For more information about the Kirby Rebirth project or to make a donation, contact Elizabeth Townsend at elizabeth.townsend@piedmontcc.edu or (336) 322-2102.
