Last week the Pleasure Island Chamber Commerce met at Michael’s Seafood to present a $2,000 check to Cape Fear Community College for the Michael McGowan Endowed Scholarship Fund.
Michael McGowan was a well-loved chef in the area who recently lost his battle with Cystic Fibrosis. The Michael McGowan Scholarship was established by Michael's wife, Shelly. The scholarship will be available to students in CFCC's culinary program.
To date, more than 70% of the funds needed have been raised to establish an endowed scholarship by September 2013. The ultimate goal is to raise at least $20,000 for the endowed scholarship, so that funds will continue to be available to students who share McGowan's passion for cooking.
The Cape Fear Community College Foundation exists solely to support the students, faculty, academic programs and mission of Cape Fear Community College. The CFCC Foundation secures and manages gifts and grants, including cash contributions, planned or estate gifts, securities, donated services, and equipment and supplies for educational purposes.
