Education: Duke Energy VP joins RCCC Foundation board of trustees
Tony Almeida, Duke Energy vice president for large business customers, has joined the Rowan-Cabarrus Community College Foundation board of directors.
A resident of Salisbury, Almeida has served as Duke Energy’s vice president of economic development and chair of the Charlotte Regional Partnership. He is vice chair of the North Carolina College Foundation Board and a member of the Duke Energy Community College Grant Advisory Committee.The Rowan-Cabarrus Community College Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization established to generate, receive and manage charitable contributions to the college. Since 1991, the RCCC Foundation has provided a much-needed source of additional funding to the college. These funds have enabled RCCC to provide services and achieve a level of excellence which would not be possible through state and local public funding alone.
The foundation is governed by a volunteer board of directors, composed of area business and community leaders. The board oversees all foundation projects and manages the allocation of gifts and contributions.
The RCCC Foundation has announced plans for its annual Golf Classic, which raises unrestricted funds for RCCC programs and services in the two-county area. This year’s Golf Classic will return to The Club at Irish Creek in Kannapolis, on Monday, Oct. 12. Play will begin with a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m. Anyone interested in sponsoring or playing in the event should call the college at 704-216-3453 for more details.
