On Thursday, October 3, 2013, Central Piedmont Community College formally dedicated the Worrell Building, located on Central Campus, and the James R. Worrell Sr. Financial Services Institute.
A Charlotte civic leader and philanthropist, Worrell is a long-time supporter of CPCC, serving on the CPCC Foundation Board of Directors and the foundation's "Legacy and Promise" campaign steering committee. Worrell has been a member of the CPCC Foundation for more than 20 years.
The Worrell Building, a newly renovated 70,417 square-foot facility, is used by more than 2,000 CPCC students a day. The facility houses a gymnasium, fitness center, 17 classrooms and seven faculty/staff offices.
The Financial Services Institute offers courses in pre-licensing, continuing education, professional development and consumer education to prepare students for careers in this highly regulated industry.
