CVCC Presents 2016 Community Partnership Awards

Each year, Catawba Valley Community College recognizes organizations that have excelled in supporting college programming in each of its three schools: the School of Academics, Education & Fine Arts, the School of Business, Industry & Technology; and the School of Health & Public Service.

CommissionersThe School Academics, Education & Fine Arts salutes the Catawba County Board of Commissioners, composed of Kitty Barnes, Barbara Beatty, Dan Hunsucker, Sherry Butler, and current chair, Randy Isenhower. Since 2004, the Catawba County Commissioners have appropriated approximately $50 million dollars for CVCC capital projects.  Some of the projects covered by the Commissioners are largely invisible, but essential infrastructure projects, such as a mile and a half of underground drainage systems, rooftop coolers, grounds maintenance, and many others essential services are funded by the Commissioners. Major projects funded by the Commissioners since 2004 include capital building projects such as the Cuyler A. Dunbar Bldg., the CVCC Student Center, the Corporate Development Center, the Valley Simulated Hospital and Catawba Valley Furniture Academy. Additionally, the Commissioners have approved funding for a new Workforce Solutions Complex in the planning phase.
