WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A grant from the Landfall Foundation is helping some Cape Fear Community College students get a jump on their careers.
The Landfall Foundation’s $4,000 grant to CFCC’s health science programs is enabling more students to become certified in their field of study and increasing their opportunities to become successfully employed, the school says. This year’s grant is helping students finishing the Dental Hygiene Program.
Regina McBarron, chairperson of CFCC’s health science programs, says the money helps students complete one of the final steps toward employment.
“Professional certifications are required for our students to get jobs,” McBarron said in a news release. “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 area.
