Yesterday, U.S. Senator Elizabeth Dole announced that
the Catawba Valley Community College in Hickory will be awarded $1 million
Economic Development Administration investments to build job training centers.
The grant should help the College construct a healthcare training facility that
will provide a simulated hospital on campus. The project, which also includes a
grant to the City of Laurinburg, will create 859 new jobs and generate private
investment in excess of $123 million.
