The Central Carolina Community College 2016-2017 Leadership through Learning First Cohort has successfully completed a year-long program, which equips employees with opportunities to enhance their skills, knowledge, and abilities by providing them with resources and networking opportunities to ensure their success. During its commencement, the group shared with members of the President’s Council two projects it developed to increase student access from the college’s Strategic Plan.

Triangle South Workforce Development Board (TSWDB) Director, Rosalind Cross, and Business Services Coordinator, Mike Peluso, spent the last year enrolled in Central Carolina’s Leadership Through Learning First program. Leadership Through Learning First focused on four goals as outlined in CCCC’s Strategic Plan. Those goals include:

1) Learning First

2) Student Access

3) Student Success

4) Collegiate Environment

Both Rosalind and Mike felt that this was a useful training. They learned valuable information that will allow them to better engage with the greater college community with an increased awareness of the needs of students and the importance of faculty and staff.

Both Rosalind and Mike look forward to applying the principles learned during the program to the continued enhancement of the relationships between community colleges and the workforce development communities. The knowledge gained will also enable them to better assist with propelling individuals along their desired career paths.

Rosalind and Mike mark two more TSWDB staff members that have completed this training program through Central Carolina Community College. Last year, Youth Services Coordinator Angela Nicholson, was a graduate of the program.
