CFCC's President to Retire
The president of Cape Fear Community College Eric McKeithan announced his retirement Thursday. WHQR’s Michelle Bliss reports that McKeithan’s retirement will go into effect on July 1st.
McKeithan has been serving as president since 1994.
In the letter announcing his retirement, McKeithan cites many of the school’s achievements. Those include having its accreditation reaffirmed in 2007 and passing a $164 million bond referendum which funded projects like the construction of classrooms, laboratories, and an auditorium.
The announcement comes after the school recently celebrated the last piece of steel being set into place in its Union Station construction project. The building is modeled after the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad depot that once stood in downtown Wilmington.
The new facility will be up and running next year with classroom space, labs for health care training, and a student services center.
