Community college breaks ground for $26M building at N.C. Research CampusBy Salisbury Post
Talk about transformation. Six years ago, Kannapolis was "ground zero for economic dislocation in our state" said Dr. Scott Ralls, president of the N.C. Community College System.
Pillowtex had closed its doors, forcing more than 4,300 area residents out of work in the biggest layoff in state history.
Now, Kannapolis is home to the $1.5 billion N.C. Research Campus and potentially thousands of biotechnology jobs, which will be filled in part by workers trained at the new branch of Rowan-Cabarrus Community College.
Ralls, Research Campus founder David Murdock and others ceremoniously broke ground Friday for the long-awaited, $26 million RCCC building.
