NC Legislators Tour Campus and Facilities

Nash Community College welcomed Nash County’s full delegation for a campus tour on Friday, November 5, 2021, including Representatives James D. Gailliard and Matthew Winslow and Senator Lisa Barnes.

The leaders attended a breakfast with NCC Student Government Association officers, Student Ambassadors, members of the Board of Trustees and senior leadership.

Following introductions and an overview, NCC President Lew Hunnicutt led the group on a campus tour including visits to culinary, the student success center, nursing, advanced manufacturing, cosmetology, fire and emergency management, basic law enforcement, and the commercial truck driving simulator.

“We are grateful for the support and advocacy of these leaders on behalf of the NC Community College System, including Nash Community College,” President Hunnicutt stated. “We want to make sure they know and understand our college’s story and the unique impact our campus makes each day on the quality of life for citizens in Nash County and beyond.”

The tour highlighted the Student Success Network, as well as customized industry and workforce training opportunities available at Nash Community College.

“I remain in contact with each delegate regularly, and each has been invited back individually for more in-depth tours,” Hunnicutt said. President Hunnicutt said he plans to set up legislative days in the future so that the delegates will be aware of events on campus.”
