CCTC Foundation Receives $160,000 Gift from Hospital Auxiliary of KershawHealth

The CCTC Foundation recently received a $160,000 gift from the Hospital Auxiliary of KershawHealth.

The Foundation was one of three recipients to benefit from the organization, which will disband in the next few weeks. Kershaw County School District’s (KCSD) Woolard Technology Center (WTC) received $81,000 and the Kershaw County Education Foundation (KCEF) received $76,000. The money is to be used for healthcare education.

The Hospital Auxiliary has a long history in Kershaw County dating back to 1913. The organization has changed names and focus over time from supporting the hospital financially to supporting healthcare and education.

The check was presented by the organization’s president Mary Clark, to Misty Hatfield, CCTC’s vice president for Institutional Advancement. Checks were also given to WTC’s Director Gordon Morris and Wesley Herndon of the KCEF.

“We are so grateful for the generous donation from the Hospital Auxiliary of KershawHealth,” Hatfield said. “The organization knows first-hand the importance of healthcare education and its impact on our area.”

The money will benefit healthcare programs at Central Carolina Technical College. Currently the college hosts the following programs in the School of Nursing and Health Sciences: Nursing, Surgical Technology, Pharmacy Technician, Massage Therapy, Medical Assisting and Medical Coding.
