McDaniel Establishes Foundation Endowment

The CVCC Foundation, Inc., recently announced the establishment of an endowment by local businessman Marty McDaniel.

To be named after the McDaniel family, the endowment was created to provide scholarships for individuals who want to pursue a law enforcement career through Catawba Valley Community College’s Basic Law Enforcement Training Program.

After suffering financial troubles, McDaniel formed the Gold King chain of precious metal purchasing outlets.

“I want to give to the community that supported me when I was down and out just a few years ago,” said McDaniel. “My philosophy is that as we invest in education, we see a gain in society. And I want to help all of society.”

The mission of the CVCC Foundation, Inc. is to foster and promote the growth, progress, and welfare of CVCC. For more information on giving, contact Teresa Biggs, executive director of the CVCC Foundation, Inc., 828-327-7000, ext. 4288,
