2023-2024 President’s Partnership Award recipient

Central Carolina is extremely grateful for the relationships we have built throughout Clarendon, Lee, Kershaw and Sumter Counties. In 2020, we started another tradition of recognizing those partners with the President’s Partnership Awards. Today we will recognize the recipient of our 2023-2024 President’s Partnership Award for her commitment and dedication to the college and the Foundation.

The 2023-2024 President’s Partnership Award recipient is Ms. Elizabeth White Lackey.

With over three decades of commitment to the cause of financial aid, Elizabeth ensured that deserving students have access to the resources they need to help pay for college. She has a unique ability to break down complicated financial aid information to students and parents so it can be understood and properly utilized.

Elizabeth has been the driving force behind the allocation of a particular CCTC Foundation scholarship that is awarded based on her personal discussions with students in need. Elizabeth has worked one-on-one with Foundation staff for many years to ensure the recipients actually receive their scholarship and the records are accurate.

Elizabeth was honored as a CCTC Top Titan in 2020, graduated from the Leadership Academy, and served as the primary contact for Project Success, a Department of Education program aimed at providing financial assistance to students in need. Outside of CCTC, she is deeply engaged in her community, actively participating in her church and lending a helping hand wherever it is needed. And although Elizabeth retired recently from CCTC, today we take a moment to express our deepest gratitude for her invaluable contributions to the college, the Foundation and the countless lives she has touched along the way.
