Each year brings exciting new challenges, but time moves so fast that sometimes we forget to take a moment to appreciate all of the accomplishments that are a direct result of the hardworking faculty and staff at FTCC. We are counting down some of our biggest moments in 2014 and would like to thank all involved in making these moments possible!
10. Saor Patrol Takes FTCC by Storm
Organized by the Student Government Association (SGA), Saor Patrol came all the way from Scotland to entertain the FTCC community with Scottish rock and battle demonstrations.
9. New Classes at the Re-Store Warehouse
The Continuing Education Department partnered with the Re-Store Warehouse to offer new upholstery and sewing classes at the facility.
8. Cumberland Hall Auditorium Gets a Facelift
The updates included new seating and technology in order to better accommodate the community events and meetings held there.
7. New Facility in Tallywood Shopping Center
The facility provides a new space to offer Esthetics courses through the Continuing Education Department.
6. Inaugural All-American Marathon
FTCC Military Programs led the way in organizing volunteers for the FTCC sponsorship of the first ever All-American Marathon.
5. New Motion Capture Room
The room features the latest in motion capture technology, allowing our Simulation and Game Development students to receive the very best training.
4. 13th Annual NC Defense and Economic Development Trade Show
Each year, the trade show organized by the North Carolina Military Business Center at FTCC brings together military, government, and vendors.
3. Industry and Education Join Forces
FTCC collaborated with the collision repair industry to create a new state-of-the-art Collision Repair and Refinishing Technology program. A brand new building was purchased, the inaugural “Team 1” class of students have begun their studies, and a building dedication is set for early 2015!
2. Opening of the All American Veterans Center
In May, Dr. Keen officially cut the ribbon on the brand new All American Veterans Center. The center is housed on the second floor of the General Classroom Building and the staff make it their mission to help all veterans, not only the student vets that attend FTCC.
After all, that is why we are all here. There is no greater joy than seeing the pride beaming from the faces of the graduates and their families at the Crown Complex each May.
