Chamber names RCC Business of the Year

Randolph Community College was named Business of the Year at the Asheboro/Randolph Chamber of Commerce’s 97th Annual Meeting Dinner & Awards Ceremony on Jan. 27 at Pinewood Country Club.

The Chamber cited a recent economic impact analysis that found RCC has a $101.4 million annual impact on the regional economy — supporting more than 2,350 jobs or one out of every 27 jobs across Randolph County. The impact of the increased earnings of RCC alumni and the businesses they work for totaled $75.9 million.

 “The entire Randolph Community College family of faculty, staff, Trustees and Foundation board members is honored to be recognized for the work we try to do every single day to create opportunities and change lives,” Interim President Elbert Lassiter said. “We also appreciate being able to work with so many amazing partners in the community, and we appreciate the confidence and trust placed in us to serve our students.”
