Creating Community Investments Today for Tomorrow's Workforce

Essay Contest Winners
The TTC Foundation announces the winners of the 2023 Future Alumni Essay Contest! This year, as the panel of volunteer judges began reading the heartfelt essays submitted by students, a prevailing theme emerged: students were sharing stories of resilience in the face of escalating challenges.

Making Smiley Connections
One of the first things you notice about Trident Technical College graduate Denetra Smiley is her infectious smile and joyful disposition. What is not always evident in Smiley’s positive demeanor is the pain in her heart from the loss of her 28-year-old son, who succumbed to osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer, five years ago.

Go Anywhere from Here
Last summer, North Charleston native Dennis Smith became the first student to graduate from the new Marine Engineering Technology associate degree program at TTC. Leading to a career as a U.S. Merchant Marine, this exciting new program includes a year-long apprenticeship and cooperative work experience at sea.

Che Buono!
Culinary Institute of Charleston (CIC) student, Sharon Ramirez, had already been to Italy several times when she traveled there recently for a unique study abroad opportunity. She said it was a completely different experience, one that she would never have gotten otherwise. Twenty students and three faculty members completed a three-week, four-region culinary tour of Italy, learning about its food, wine, culture and history.
