PCC thanks voters for supporting bond referendum

Posted: Updated:
WINTERVILLE, N.C. - Pitt Community College employees, students and supporters volunteered their time this morning to thank Pitt County voters for their support.

The $19.9 million dollar bond referendum for Pitt Community College passed with 62 percent of the votes in Wednesday's municipal election.

Volunteer's lined up in front of the college along Memorial Drive around 6:30 Wednesday morning with signs thanking voters for their support.

The money collected from the bond will go toward the construction of a new science building and the relocation of the college's basic law enforcement training program.

PCC president, Doctor G Dennis Massey says they would have been out there thanking the voters regardless of the outcome.

"We will be very responsible with this funding.  We will do what we said we're going to do.  We're going to move forward with planning the science building, moving our law enforcement training center,” said Dr. G. Dennis Massey, Pitt Community College President. “I think it's going to be a great future for us and I hope to not have to say we're the most crowded of all 58 community colleges in the state of North Carolina."

The new science building is projected to house science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) classes, along with labs for advanced manufacturing, biotechnology, biology and physics.

Currently, Pitt Community College is the most crowded institute of high education in the state.
