Wake Tech Community College recognized community partners at its annual Excellence Awards.
Martin Marietta was named Corporate Benefactor of the Year. Martin Marietta has been a steadfast supporter of Wake Tech for more than 20 years. The company’s gifts have provided a range of opportunities – with the most visible being the Outdoor Geology Labs at the Northern and Main campuses, which feature 26 multi-ton boulders personally selected from quarry sites across North Carolina. Martin Marietta’s most recent investment of $150,000 is helping prepare the next generation of Heavy Equipment Operations students by providing simulators, survey equipment, faculty professional development and student scholarships.
The Excellence Awards are sponsored annually by the Wake Tech Foundation, which receives and administers private sector funds for college programs.
