Although faculty and staff at Northshore Technical Community College (NTCC) have always celebrated their workplace culture, commitment to the institution and team spirit, as of April 3, 2017, they are celebrating more than ever!

After a month long Internal Giving Campaign, during which full-time faculty and staff had the opportunity to show their support for their college through a contribution to the Northshore College Enhancement Foundation, the final results were revealed. Far exceeding national averages for employee participation in internal giving campaigns, NTCC achieved 100% and raised more than $9,400! The impressive 100% is only part of the story; not only did all 156 full-time faculty and staff, working from five campus locations all contribute, but an additional 20 part-time and adjunct faculty joined in to contribute as well.

The incredible wave of support that employees of NTCC have shown is a testament to their unwavering belief in the mission, vision, and future of Northshore Technical Community College. Daily they contribute their talents and energies in order to create a first-rate learning experience for students. Now they have shown they are willing to give back financially as well, personally supporting students as they pursue their academic and career goals.

Dr. William Wainwright, Chancellor of NTCC, expressed his appreciation stating, “This incredible accomplishment is a direct reflection of a shared belief in mission, as evidenced by our complete faculty and staff participation. I am extremely proud of this achievement and investment in student success.”

Every dollar contributed during this 3rd Annual Internal Giving Campaign will go directly to funding student scholarships through the Gators Give Scholarship Award. If you would like information on how you can participate in supporting student success, please contact April Smith at

Northshore Technical Community College (NTCC) is a comprehensive college with a rich history of providing workforce training and academic pathways to regional universities for the greater Northshore region. The 2010 National Center for Higher Education Management Study acknowledged the increasing demand on the Northshore for higher education infrastructure specific to the fields of STEM – results led to the legislation to establish state-of-the-art facilities in Lacombe, Louisiana. In 2015, NTCC was recognized by the Brookings Institute as the first in the nation for economic value of its graduates. Community College Weekly recognized NTCC in 2014 as sixth in the nation for fastest growth among community colleges of its size. As an ACT College and Career Readiness Exemplar, NTCC continues to provide relevant programs and timely responsiveness to local and regional industries.
