- Renovations of the Manager’s Cottage are already underway
- Officials say they’re proud to provide a stable home for homeless student veterans
- The Heroes Center will host a concert with proceeds from the show going toward the renovations
Renovations of the Manager’s Cottage are already underway and the 20-bed dorm has priority after that.
Officials are also planning to renovate the dining hall on campus and transform the other dorm-like building into 10 classrooms.
Officials say they’re proud to provide a stable home for homeless student veterans at GTCC transitioning from combat to back in the community.
“We’re happy to be a place where veterans can come and call their own and share in the comradery of like-minded people that had similar experiences,” said Bob Uber, founder and president of the Heroes Center.
Mark Harris, dean of the GTCC High Point campus, said, “We have a place where students can maintain an environment where they can stay in school, have some privacy as well as have facilities and things they need.”
The Heroes Center will host a concert on campus with Miss North Carolina USA and The Carolina Voices on July 2, at 6 p.m.
All proceeds from the show go toward the renovations.
