GREENVILLE, NC (WNCT)- Local education leaders are trying to get people on board to approve a bond on March’s ballot.
The Connect NC bond, first proposed by Governor Pat McCrory, would take 2-billion state tax dollars and divide it out to improve infrastructure.
Part of that means universities and community colleges will get major upgrades.
In Greenville on Tuesday, ECU’s chancellor and PCC’s president spoke at a lunch on how they would benefit.
“The east would get over $3 hundred million of water projects national guard, agricultural projects, so this bond issue is much more than East Carolina University,” ECU Chancellor Dr. Steve Ballard said.
PCC President Dr. Dennis Massey said, “It’s going to help up shore the facilities that we utilize every day so intensively to serve our students and faculty.”
All 58 community colleges would stand to benefit.
