Alamance Community College (ACC) is pleased to announce the receipt of a $100,000 grant, generously awarded by the efforts of Senator Amy Scott Galey, Representative Ross, and Representative Riddell. The presentation of the check took place last night during the ACC Board of Trustees Meeting, marking a significant advancement for the college’s Dillingham Campus.


This substantial grant will facilitate the creation of a comprehensive "one-stop-shop" for student support services at the Dillingham Campus in Burlington. The funding will be used to purchase essential equipment, furniture, and signage, enhancing the accessibility and visibility of the wide range of support services available to students.


The new one-stop-shop will centralize numerous resources under one roof, creating a streamlined experience for all attendees. Services to be offered include a food pantry, expanded access to staff providing financial aid assistance, distance learning and technical support, mentoring, advising and registration services, mental health support, and library and tutoring services.


Justin Snyder, Vice President of Workforce Development at ACC, expressed his excitement about the project: "This grant represents a significant step forward in our commitment to supporting every student’s journey towards success. By bringing together a variety of services in one convenient location, we are removing barriers to educational and personal achievement.”


ACC is committed to providing an inclusive and supportive environment where every student can thrive. This grant supports the physical expansion and enhancement of our facilities and deeply aligns with our mission to foster student success and community enrichment.


“We extend our deepest gratitude to Senator Galey, Representative Stephen Ross, and Representative Dennis Riddell for their dedication and support in securing this grant. Their commitment to education and the welfare of our students ensures that ACC continues to serve as a beacon of learning and support in our community,” said Dr. Ken Ingle, President of Alamance Community College.
