Cannon Foundation Contributes to SCC

The Charles A. Cannon Charitable Trust has awarded $100,000 to Stanly Community College (SCC) for additional Simulation Lab equipment. The simulation lab uses high-tech manikins and equipment and allows students to mirror that of a functioning clinic or hospital.

“We are extremely grateful for the generosity of the Cannon Foundation, Inc. in their continued support of Stanly Community College’s Signature Allied Health Campus,” stated Dr. Brenda Kays. “This grant will enhance the training equipment in our simulation lab. The simulation lab provides SCC students with high-stakes experience in a low-risk and controlled environment.”

The mission of SCC’s Allied Health Signature Campus is to provide state-of-the-art programs and training facilities to meet the needs of our students and industry. As part of the College’s strategic planning process, seven curriculum and six occupational education programs, along with a 1,700 square foot simulation center, are part of the Crutchfield Education Center in Locust. This strategy will develop our future workforce base and better align worker training and skills with the needs of the healthcare industry. Programs that are offered at the Allied Health Signature center include: Certified Nursing Assistant; EMT – Basic & Paramedic; Medical Assisting; Medical Laboratory Technology; Multi-Skilled Nurse Aide; Nursing - Associate & Returning LPN; Pharmacy Technology; Phlebotomy; Radiography; and Respiratory Therapy.
