At Piedmont Community College’s (PCC) Board of Trustees meeting on August 4, the College’s directors unanimously approved a resolution that supports the attainment goals of myFutureNC. This goal includes closing the educational attainment gap by ensuring that 2 million North Carolinians have a high-quality credential or postsecondary degree by 2030.

The resolution states that PCC is committed to acting as a catalyst for local and regional economic development by providing education and training to address current and emerging workforce needs.

In addition, the College, along with other key partners, will help advance the educational attainment of students in North Carolina by enriching lives through education, training, and cultural opportunities for lifelong learning and professional success in local, regional, and global communities.

“Community colleges are uniquely situated to support the workforce needs of our state. Their partnership is necessary to achieve our goal of ensuring that 2 million students achieve a high-quality credential or post secondary degree by 2030,” said Cecilia Holden, President and CEO of myFutureNC. “Piedmont Community College plays a pivotal role in their community in expanding access to high quality educational opportunities to increase attainment and the quality of life for their students, community and North Carolina overall.”

Piedmont Community College, in consort with leaders in business, education, state and local government, and community organizations, will continue to foster partnerships to achieve this goal.

“We are proud to join myFutureNC in closing the skills gap by preparing North Carolina residents for the jobs of the future,” shares Dr. Pamela G. Senegal, President, Piedmont Community College. “Education and training have always been important, but increasingly, business and industry want credentials, along with soft skills and real-world experience for their positions.”

In both Person and Caswell counties, PCC already offers opportunities such as:
• Free preparation to earn a high school equivalency;
• North Carolina Career Readiness Certificate;
• Pathways for high school students to prepare for college and employment;

“As we work to meet myFutureNC’s ambitious goal, and enrich the future of our communities, PCC is committed to modernizing our facilities, integrating internships into academic work, and to creating partnerships from which our students will benefit,” Senegal stated.
