PrintFriendlyEmail

The Nash Community College Foundation has announced the establishment of the Mansfield-Moore Endowment for College Initiatives by Jeanne Moore of Nashville, NC. Ms. Moore established the endowment through a planned gift, facilitated by Steve Felton who serves on the NCC Foundation Board. The perpetual gift serves as a legacy to Carolyn Mansfield’s and Jeanne Moore’s dedication to supporting Nash Community College programming.

Their support began with the establishment of the Mansfield-Moore Veterans Scholarship in 2015 providing resources for students who are veterans and/or spouses or children of veterans with financial need. In addition, Mansfield and Moore have provided support to the college’s Blue Love Fund to assist students with needs beyond the scope of tuition.

The late Ms. Mansfield was a retired nutritionist from Nash General Hospital and was pleased to provide support to the Culinary Arts program. Through their gifts, the donors were instrumental in the construction of the Tuscan Patio, an outdoor kitchen and entertainment space adjacent to the Culinary Kitchen. Their contributions to the Culinary Arts program have also helped to underwrite major equipment purchases.
