At Carroll Community College, the student is, and will always be, the number one priority. And thanks to you, our generous donors, we can offer the resources and programs that are required now and in the future, providing students with the opportunity to learn, thrive, and give back to the community. Investments made in state-of-the-market technology, along with scholarships to ease the financial burden on our students, have a tremendous payback for our community. Our goal is to provide Carroll County employers with the most qualified workforce, one that is prepared for in-demand jobs right now and the jobs of the future. The entire Carroll County community rallied around the “Investing in a Brilliant Future” campaign, so much so that we were able to surpass our goal. They understood the importance of giving students an opportunity, which then leads to a career that allows them to prosper and contribute to their companies, their families, and the community. It was an honor to serve as the Campaign Chair and work with so many of you to ensure that the College remains the brilliant “Jewel of Carroll County.”
Because of you, our students have access to high-quality educational opportunities to advance
careers, enrich lives, and strengthen the community we serve. Below
is a glimpse of Campaign Achievements.
