Transportation Impact donates $50,000 in honor of Carteret Community College 50th anniversary

For immediate release

Emerald Isle, N.C. (April 3, 2013) – Transportation Impact is proud to announce a $50,000 to Carteret Community College in honor of the college’s 50th anniversary. With the donation, the Emerald Isle-based parcel spend management firm becomes the official sponsor for the year-long event and plans to see an increased roll with CCC.

The funds will go towards annual scholarships for CCC students as well as to help funding much-needed staff-related budgets that the college says have been cut due to the tough economy.

“Our local community means a lot to us as people and as a company,” said company Co-Founder, Keith Byrd. “We are thrilled to be in a position to help the college in any way we can, and it is our hope that this pledge will go a long way toward helping the college continue on its mission of preparing the citizens of Carteret and surrounding counties for entry into the workforce.”
