Forsyth Tech Foundation created the Pathways to Possibilities Capital Campaign to raise funds for technology improvements at the college to keep pace with evolving and innovative workforce training demands.
Susan Cameron, honorary campaign chair and executive chair of the Reynolds American Incorporated board, sees future success with this effort. “People want Forsyth Tech to be successful,” Cameron said. “This community recognizes the value that Forsyth Tech brings to this community, so we will be getting our community and Forsyth Tech future-ready.”
She sees several reasons to connect, as she works in a dynamic business environment and has seen how technology has played a transformative role in the success of Reynolds American. “Embracing innovation is just the first step,” Cameron said, “It’s not enough to keep pace with change. You have to drive change. To do that, you have to invest in the development of your employees to help them make those changes. I’ve also seen firsthand the powerful role that Forsyth Tech has played in our success.”
According to Alan Proctor, chair of the Forsyth Tech Board of Trustees, and a senior vice president for Wells Fargo, “these [Campaign] funds are critical to our capacity to meet 21st century expectations and the needs of Forsyth County employers and employees.”
Finally, words from President Gary Green. “We can no longer rely purely on public funding for the needs of the community college in today’s economy. That’s driven specifically by technology and the kinds of expertise that we need to prepare people for the jobs that they want.”
Currently, the Foundation of Forsyth Tech has raised more than $19 million, surpassing their $18 million goal.
