QCC Newsletter

On December 12, generous donors, Southbridge Savings Bank, United Lens Company, Savers Bank and Southbridge Credit Union, convened at QCC Southbridge to pledge a total of $135,000 to QCC’s $5 million RISE (Regional Investment in Service and Education RISE) Capital Campaign, under the leadership of recently retired President & CEO of Southbridge Savings Bank, Phil Pettinelli, Chair of the South County RISE Campaign Committee.

Mr. Pettinelli said, “…we are proud to support QCC in its efforts to keep pace with emerging technologies and produce advanced training and education for our region’s workers.” President Gail E. Carberry said, “QCC is honored to collaborate with such a dedicated group of private partners to provide access to training and education in high-growth industries in our service area.

Collaborative, strategic investment will help ensure that people in our community have access to the training they need to get good jobs and that employers have access to an educated workforce.” The first year of the $5 million RISE Campaign, announced publicly at the grand opening of the Healthcare and Workforce Development Center in October, has reached $3.2 million.
