Landfall Foundation grant helps CFCC students afford certification exams

May 14th, 2015 by Sonya Johnson

Wilmington, NC – The Landfall Foundation’s $4,000 grant to Cape Fear Community College’s health science programs is enabling more students to become certified in their field of study and increasing their opportunities to become successfully employed. This year’s grant is assisting students finishing CFCC’s Dental Hygiene Program.

Regina McBarron, chairperson of CFCC’s health science programs, says that the funds provided by the Landfall Foundation help students complete one of the final steps toward employment. “Professional certifications are required for our students to get jobs.  Many of our students struggle to pay for the certification exams. The Landfall Foundation assists our students with those expenses, and in turn, helps them to start working in their field.”

The mission of the Landfall Foundation is to provide funds to local nonprofit organizations for programs and projects that provide for the Arts, Education, and Health and Welfare in the Greater Wilmington, North Carolina area.

The Cape Fear Community College Foundation exists solely to support the students, teachers, programs and mission of Cape Fear Community College. The Foundation secures and manages gifts and grants, including cash contributions, deferred gifts, securities, donated services, and equipment and supplies for educational purposes.  For more information about CFCC, The CFCC Foundation or scholarship opportunities, contact the Cape Fear Community College Foundation at 910.362.7207 or visit www.cfcc.edu/foundation.
