On March 3, voters will decide on a $45 million bond referendum for Rowan-Cabarrus Community College.
The school is a leader in educating our local workforce and driving community progress.
In keeping with the College’s mission of improving lives and building community through public higher education and workforce development, the bonds will provide resources for an emerging and incumbent workforce, as well as for workers in transition due to job loss or career change.
- Expand and enhance technical programs directly related to Rowan County’s workforce and economic development needs.
- Expand our community competitiveness to develop additional opportunities for the community to prosper.
- Support dual credit programs that allow high school students to earn college credit while participating in career and technical education.
- Develop a first-of-its-kind fire training facility focused on firefighter safety.
