BCTC named ‘Community Partner of the Year’ by the Winchester-Clark County Chamber of Commerce
WINCHESTER, Ky. – Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC) has been named the 2017 Community Partner of the Year by the Winchester-Clark County Chamber of Commerce. The award is part of a rating system called the Community Partner Program (CPP) that recognizes local organizations, businesses, and industries that go above and beyond in their investment, promotion, and contributions to the Winchester-Clark County community. Applicants are reviewed and scored by an independent committee and ratings are based on the percentage of the final number of points earned to points possible.
BCTC has been an active member of the Winchester-Clark County Chamber of Commerce for close to 15 years, and has previously won Business of the Year in 2002, and 2014 Director of the Year for Bruce Manley, campus director of the BCTC Winchester-Clark County Campus.
Among the criteria for the award was to prove that employees volunteer at local community nonprofits, after school programs and mentoring/tutoring programs. The campus also is involved with local events such as the Beer Cheese Festival, Pioneer Festival, Run for the Paws 5K, George Rogers Clark athletics, and its own Moonlight Movie Nights in the summer.
