LeMond Hart ushers you into his tiny vintage men's clothing shop, tucked into NoDa's Area 15. He rushes behind the coffee bar and offers you a Café LeMond coffee confection, with whipped cream and caramel drizzle.
Racks of men's clothes perch all about the place pants and jackets, shirts and vests and glass cases with lapel pins, cufflinks, shoes and belt buckles dot the shop. Little tables and chairs cluster near the coffee bar, old framed photos and eclectic art line the brightly colored walls, and on a bench snoozes an orange tabby named Garfield.
He later enrolled at CPCC, where he earned his associate's degree in 2012.
When Central Piedmont Community College's (CPCC) 2015 fall semester opens on Aug. 17, students will have four additional associate degree programs to consider. The college will launch new degree programs in engineering, biomedical equipment technology, broadcasting and production, and global logistics and distribution management.
On June 11, 2015, nurisng alumni gathered to celebrate the success of the Christa A. Overcash Associate Degree in Nursing program. After welcoming remarks and shared success stories, the alumni were treated to tours of the new simulation labs and instructional spaces. Current students and May graduates of the program acted as tour guides and hosts for the evening.
