The Foundation of Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute held its Annual Fund Campaign kickoff luncheon on Wednesday, March 5 at the J.E. Broyhill Civic Center, and the celebration extended well beyond the usual festivities. In honor of the 50th anniversary of the founding of CCC&TI, Foundation leaders set a record high fund drive goal and challenged CCC&TI supporters to join the celebration by supporting student scholarships.

Foundation Vice Chair Deborah Murray, at the opening of the luncheon, led the audience in a toast with specially decorated cupcakes topped with 50s.
