Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest visited Cape Fear Community College on Tuesday, July 30. During his brief visit to the college, Forest took a preview tour of academic areas in CFCC’s soon-to-be-opened Union Station Building.
Health Sciences faculty and college officials escorted Forest on the tour, showing him the college’s new science, surgical technology and nursing labs as well as classroom space and a computer lab. Lt. Gov. Forest also listened to a short presentation about Healthcare Business Informatics, a new program beginning at CFCC this fall.
An architect by trade, Forest said he enjoyed seeing Union Station. ”Walking through new buildings is one of my favorite things to do,” he said. ”You’ve got a fine facility here, lots of schools across the state will want to see what you’ve done here in Wilmington.”
Dr. Amanda Lee, Vice President for Instructional Services at CFCC, said she was pleased that the Lieutenant Governor was able to visit Union Station. ”It’s always nice when our elected officials can come and see what a tremendous job CFCC is doing in our region. It is especially important for us to highlight how the community-backed bond money is being spent, and how we’ve been able to use those funds for the benefit of our entire service area. Union Station will be a wonderful training facility for our students.”
