RCC Board of Trustees continues mission of Pathways to Prosperity

ASHEBORO (Nov. 20, 2018)


Randolph Community College’s Board of Trustees voted unanimously to move forward with the application process for the College’s Agribusiness Technology program with the North Carolina Community College System at Thursday’s meeting in the Martha Luck Comer Conference Center on the Asheboro Campus.

Vice President for Administrative Services Daffie Garris gave a report on the renovation of the Welding Lab at the Archdale Center, noting that demolition was under way.


“Because of the great success of the Welding program and the need in that industry, we are adding more welding booths so we can train more students,” RCC President Dr. Robert Shackleford Jr. said.


Both the Agribusiness Technology program and the Welding program are part of the Pathways to Prosperity — a collaborative effort with RCC, the Randolph County School System, Asheboro City Schools, and local businesses and industries in Randolph County.


The Trustees also voted unanimously to support Shackleford’s support of the continued use of the quarter-cent tax referendum funds for the capital needs of RCC.
