Wilmington, NC – The North Carolina Healthcare Engineers Association (NCHEA) recently contributed $10,000 to Cape Fear Community College for scholarships. The scholarships were awarded to two engineering students for the 2018-19 academic year: Kymel Bloodworth and Nicholas Hagley.
NCHEA is a not-for-profit, incorporated association, dedicated to serving and promoting the healthcare engineering profession. The 66th NCHEA conference was held at the Wilmington Convention Center Aug. 7 through Aug. 10. By tradition, NCHEA incorporates a community outreach project during its annual conference each year. This year the association created a scholarship to support CFCC’s engineering programs, which include electronics engineering technology, mechanical engineering technology, and mechatronics engineering technology.
“We can’t thank NCHEA enough for their generous investment in our engineering students,” said CFCC Dean of Career and Technical Education Mark Council. “The difference their support makes in the lives of these students is tremendous and it will propel and equip the engineering workforce of the future.”
The Cape Fear Community College Foundation exists to support the mission of the college and its students, faculty, staff, programs, scholarships and specific capital projects. The Foundation secures and manages the endowment, gifts, and grants consistent with donor intent; these include, but are not limited to, cash contributions, planned or estate gifts, securities, donated services, equipment and supplies for educational purposes.
