I was a combination of excited and disappointed to hear that Dr. Tim Hardee, President of Central Carolina Technical College, will be leaving to head up the state technical college system. I was excited because Tim will do a super job of leading our state’s technical colleges. I was disappointed because he has been a tremendous partner to our district. Tim and I started in our current jobs during the same week in 2007. We had breakfast early along and started talking about how CCTC and our district could work together better and more closely. Increased dual enrollment classes and a program that provides a two-year scholarship to Kershaw County graduates to CCTC grew out of our early discussions. Tim will be missed, but I know his vision, energy, and expertise will now benefit our entire state!
