Wilmington Central Rotary Club continues to support CFCC student scholarships with $10,000 donation
The Wilmington Central Rotary Club recently donated $10,000 to an existing endowed scholarship at Cape Fear Community College.
Funds for the scholarship were raised from proceeds from the Rotary’s Wilmington’s Got Talent event which was held in October, 2013. Central Rotary member Louise McColl chaired the event.
Led by president Wally Simpson, the Wilmington Central Rotary has 27 members who meet each Tuesday at noon at McAllister’s on College Road.
“The Wilmington Central Rotary Club is a dedicated community partner,” said Dr. Ted D. Spring, president of Cape Fear Community College. “This generous donation is a wonderful way to impact local residents by providing opportunities for education and job training.”
Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
