McDowell Technical Community College is proud to participate in American Cancer Society Great American Smokeout on Thursday, November 16th. Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to commit or recommit to healthy, tobacco-free lives – not just for a day, but year around.

From 10:00- 1:30 in the commons area we will host:
· A representative from McDowell Hospital-Mission Health will bring a Pig Lung demonstration related to smoking.
· The Regional Tobacco Prevention and Control Branch representative for our region will be available with educational materials regarding smoking and cessation.
· McDowell Access to Care And Health (MATCH) will be on site to assist anyone interested in open enrollment for the Affordable Care Act

Most of us know all too well the devastating impact tobacco can have on people’s health. Tobacco use is the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the United States. Yet, 40 million American adults still smoke. The most important thing smokers can do to improve their health is to quit cigarettes and other forms of combustible tobacco.

At the same time, we know tobacco is one of the strongest addictions one can have. We used to encourage smokers to quit cold turkey on a single day. We now know that quitting is a process. It starts with a plan, often takes time and requires a lot of support. QuitlineNC is free service available to any North Carolina resident who needs help quitting tobacco. Quitline can be reached by phone 24/7 at 1-800-QUIT NOW (1-800-784-8669). You can also register online at www.quitlinenc.com for web based coaching. Resources are available in English and Spanish.

McDowell Technical Community College wants you to be healthy and happy. During this year’s Great American Smokeout, we hope you will join us – and encourage your friends, family and colleagues to join us – in committing or recommitting to year-around, tobacco-free lives.

Major Golf Tournament Sponsors Recognized!

Mr. Chip Cross, Director of the MTCC Foundation, Dr. John Gossett, President of McDowell Technical Community College and Mr. Sim Butler, Chair of the MTCC Foundation, recently recognized major sponsors of the 2017 MTCC Golf Tournament for their support of the Foundation and its efforts to raise funds in support of the college and its programs. Countryside BBQ, Farm Bureau Insurance and Pepsi each received framed certificates from the MTCC Foundation Board of Directors.

The tournament was held earlier this summer at the Marion Lake Club and raised almost $7,000 for student scholarships. Over 70% of MTCC students receive some form of financial assistance each year and scholarship funds such as these help the college meet those needs.

"We want to thank everyone who supported our Foundation Golf Tournament by sponsoring a team, participating in the tournament, sponsoring a hole, donating gifts to be auctioned, or volunteering, but we especially thank these major sponsors, without whom we would not have been as successful," said Cross. Twenty-five four-man teams participated in the tournament, and almost 150 people and organizations supported this effort in total!
