It's always great to be thanked. Sometimes we don't say it enough. So THANK YOU! Your generosity allows students to complete their dream. With out our donors, we would not receive great emails like this one:

"...I can't thank you enough for the scholarship you offered me.  I am (now) working toward my Bachelor degree and have a few credits left in order to graduate. Thank you , Simon C."

Great News! CB&I gives $100k to CPCC for welding program

CB&I Co. is contributing $100,000 to Central Piedmont Community College to support the welding and nondestructive-examination facilities at school's Harper Campus. Announcement of the gift was made during the Charlotte Chamber's intercity visit to Houston last week.
