NC Connect bond approved by voters

Wednesday, March 16, 2016

Dear Members of the Appalachian Community:

North Carolinians have recognized the importance of support for education, parks, safety, recreation, and water and sewer infrastructure projects in 76 counties across our state as part of the Connect NC public improvement bond. As Chancellor of Appalachian State University, I recognize the many ways our state will benefit from this investment in one of the best education systems in the world.

The benefits to our state will include not only a boost to economic activity, but also improved health care. Appalachian State University’s role in this growth is in providing quality health care professionals and we are excited that our university will receive funding to build a state-of–the-art teaching and research facility for the Beaver College of Health Sciences. Appalachian’s newest college is making a difference in the lives of our students and enhancing health and quality of life in our state and beyond.

We thank the voters and all who supported this effort. Please stay tuned for exciting updates and information on an upcoming groundbreaking.
