Bank of America Provides Grant to Support Economic and Workforce Development at Forsyth Technical Community College

The Bank of America Charitable Foundation has donated $10,000 to support scholarships for skills development at Forsyth Tech through the Economic and Workforce Development division.

Bank of America is lending, investing and giving in local communities in order to advance local economies and create positive change.

“In order for our community to thrive, we must work together to fill jobs with skilled employees,” said Derek Ellington, Triad Market President at Bank of America. “Through job training and quality instruction, this program is giving underemployed or unemployed individuals an opportunity for a rewarding career. We’re excited to support this training and to drive economic mobility in our community.”

The grant will provide scholarships for students needing short-term skills development to move into work and careers. Through the CareersNOW program, students will develop competencies and confidence for high-demand fields.

“We are grateful to Bank of America for this support,” said Juanita Murphy, director, career advancement and support at Forsyth Tech. “Through this grant, we’re increasing economic opportunities and helping change lives.”
