The total amount awarded was $8,625. Funds for the Whatley Employment Enhancement Awards come from an endowment created by Mr. and Mrs. James Whatley. This allows NTCC employees to get financial support for innovative projects that might not otherwise be funded.
“Each year we are impressed by the quality and the number of proposals we receive. Our employees care about making NTCC a better place for students and this is a small way we can encourage their creativity and enthusiasm,” Dr. Jonathan McCullough, NTCC Vice President for Advancement, said.
