April is Community College Month. Eastern West Virginia Community and Technical College joined #CCMonth, a monthlong grassroots education and stigma-busting campaign coordinated by the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) to improve awareness of the value and need to support community colleges. The primary goals of #CCmonth are to improve awareness of the economic, academic, and equity advantages of attending community colleges and to bust longtime stigmas wrongly associated with public two-year colleges.
Eastern West Virginia Community and Technical College has hired Robert Burns to serve as Director of Non-Profits. In this role, Burns will be responsible for the coordination and continued development of internal and external stakeholders, fundraising efforts, and grant opportunities to benefit the Eastern Foundation and Eastern Workforce Opportunity Regional Center and Services, Inc. (WORCS).
