CFCC Sustainability Technologies Recognized for Environmental Stewardship
Cape Fear Community College is pleased to announce that the CFCC Sustainability Technologies program was recently recognized with the Stewardship Champion Award from the Lower Cape Fear Stewardship Development Coalition.
The Stewardship Champion Award is given annually to professionals who have demonstrated exceptional commitment and vision to environmental practices, programs, issues, development, and design. Furthermore, the award recognizes the recipients as environmental stewardship “champions, trailblazers, and visionaries.” The award was presented at the Lower Cape Fear Stewardship Development Coalition’s Awards Luncheon held February 20, 2020, at the Coastline Conference and Event Center.
“I’m humbled and honored to be recognized by the Lower Cape Fear Stewardship Development Coalition,” said CFCC Sustainability Technologies Program Director John Wojciechowski. “Not only is this a great achievement by our program, but it shows the great relationships we have with local private and public organizations.”
“Cape Fear Community College’s Sustainability Technologies program is so relevant in today’s eco-conscious business climate,” said CFCC President Jim Morton. “Our instructors are leaders in the field who work diligently to prepare our students for jobs that are in demand nationwide. We are honored to receive this important award that recognizes their efforts and the significance of this program in our community.”
