Foundation Board Member Helps Power a Stronger Future for Students

Today, Kenneth "Ken" Samuelson, helps power a stronger future for Central Piedmont by serving as a member of the Foundation Board of Directors and its Planned Giving Committee. In the future, Ken will make a difference as he helps students become physical therapists, nurses, welders, heating and air conditioning specialists, auto mechanics, graphic designers, information technology professionals and more. Ken has generously named Central Piedmont a beneficiary of his Individual Retirement Account (IRA). "I believe in Central Piedmont," Ken says. "A future gift from an IRA is a smart strategy to use to invest in the college, help students, and support our community."
