VGCC gets safety training grant

CONCORD -- The Cannon Foundation Board of Directors recently approved a $150,000 grant to the Vance-Granville Community College Endowment Fund to renovate a 3,200-square-foot space on the college's Main Campus for an Emergency Simulation Lab.

The new lab will enable law enforcement and emergency services departments in Vance, Granville, Franklin and Warren counties to train and certify their current and future public safety workers using a realistic scenario-based curriculum in a controlled environment.

The grant will be used, along with funds from the Connect NC bond (approved by North Carolina voters earlier this year), to complete the final phase of Building 10, which opened in August on the main campus in Vance County.

The building houses classrooms, labs and faculty for VGCC's law enforcement, fire/rescue and emergency medical services education and training programs.

"We are very pleased to receive this grant, because it will allow Vance-Granville to further enhance our vital partnerships with the local agencies that protect and serve our communities," said Dr. Stelfanie Williams, president of VGCC.

"We're excited about the possibilities that this new lab will provide for us to serve students and our public safety partners."

The Cannon Foundation, based in Concord, is part of the philanthropic legacy of Charles A. Cannon, an industrialist and humanitarian who was president and chairman of Cannon Mills Company for more than half a century.
