PCC kicks off strategic planning process with community members and guest speaker Derald Wise of Booz Allen Hamilton

An Army veteran, Wise is currently a Senior Lead Technologist at Booz Allen Hamilton in Raleigh, NC. He spent time on PCC’s Caswell and Person County campuses discussing areas of technology and how its growth relates to education and employment, both now and in the future. The second portion of the kick-off was focused on planning for the College’s 10-year strategic plan, where guests were asked to consider two main topics: technology and student success as it relates to completion rates.
