JAMESTOWN, N.C. (Dec. 8, 2021) – Two members of the North Carolina House of Representatives spent Monday morning learning about several Guilford Technical Community College programs during a tour of the college.

GTCC President Anthony Clarke, Ph.D, and GTCC Senior Vice President of Instruction Beth Pitonzo, Ph.D, led State Rep. Jon Hardister (R-Guilford) and State Rep. John Faircloth (R-Guilford) on a tour of the Aviation Campus, the Center for Advanced Manufacturing (CADM), and the Medlin Campus Center.

“Representatives Hardister and Faircloth are passionate supporters of GTCC, and it is a pleasure anytime that I can give them an up-close look at what we have going on here,” said Clarke. “It’s very important that we keep our legislators informed of the many exciting things we have happening at GTCC and the positive impact it is having on our community.”

The two state legislators began their tour at the Aviation Campus with an overview of the aviation program and then visited the CADM where they were updated on the machining, diesel and heavy equipment and welding programs. They also visited the recently renovated Medlin Campus Center.
