BCCC Recognizes the Contributions of Rod and Gina Cantrell

The Beaufort County Community College Foundation has partnered with financial advisor Rod Cantrell for years to provide scholarships for students. Rod and Gina Cantrell created the Rod Cantrell and Family Endowment to fund scholarships for students for the next ten years. Through Edward Jones, Rod has managed the assets of the BCCC Foundation to provide the greatest return on endowments set up by generous donors. This enables the foundation to give the greatest amount of scholarships.

Cantrell has also sponsored the Legacy Luncheon for the past five years. This is an opportunity for scholarship recipients to break bread with donors. Students can share their goals and learn a few tips for success from the people who want to give back to the community.

Never one to shy away from a volunteer opportunity, Cantrell has often helped at events, donated items for auction and helped to further the mission of the college in many other ways. The BCCC Foundation recognizes these contributions as ones that have a catalytic effect, spreading hope and opportunity well beyond the walls of the college.
