College hosts CMS leaders, administrators

Central Piedmont hosted a dinner for close to 30 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools principals and district administration members on its Harris Campus yesterday. The group was joined by more than 20 Central Piedmont administrators, directors, assistant directors, and students as well.

During the event, guests heard stories from CMS alumni who have attended Central Piedmont and learned how the college’s many services and programs, such as Summer Bridge, Opportunity Scholars, Career & College Promise, the Longleaf Grant, or Accelerated Career Training (ACT) initiative, helped them accomplish their educational goals.

“This event is a celebration of student outcomes in partnership with transfer, dual enrollment and state-wide grant opportunities,” said Dr. Chris Cathcart, VP of Student Affairs. “Central Piedmont looks forward to advancing opportunities for all CMS students in the future by learning directly from our CMS partners what additional avenues will meet their needs so they may persist and complete.”
