The Sampson Community College Foundation just wrapped the 31st annual Campus Drive campaign with another year of 100 percent giving from the staff and faculty.

The event kicked off with a Vegas-themed luncheon of “Betting on Sampson,” and Scott Prestage and Tom Turlington taught the art of craps to staff and faculty.

SCC President Dr. Paul Hutchins opened the event by commending the staff for their dedication and commitment to the success of students. Foundation Assistant, Brandon Wiggins, thanked the group for supporting the Foundation and shared that approximately 90 percent of the gifts given directly impact students through scholarships or program support.

While few other community college foundations in NC have the full commitment of staff and faculty, Sampson Community College is the only school that has the distinction of 31 years of 100 percent participation in the Campus Drive. The event raised almost $13,000 in gifts and pledges this year.

Foundation Executive Director Lisa Turlington stated, “The staff and faculty at Sampson Community College set the bar high for supporting the college. Our year of annual giving starts with the Campus Drive Campaign, and our staff sends a message to the community that they believe in the opportunities at SCC.”
