Window World Makes $1.5 Million Donation to Wilkes Community College Scholarship FundApril 5th, 2022 by Editor
Window World® has confirmed its commitment to the communities it serves with a significant donation to secure higher education opportunities for future generations.
Window World chairperson and CEO Tammy Whitworth recently presented Wilkes Community College (WCC) in Wilkesboro, N.C., with a $1.5 million donation to the WCC Education Promise Scholarship Fund. In honor of the donation, the college renamed Alumni Hall on its campus “Window World Hall.”
“As a Wilkes native, I was born and raised in this beautiful county. That’s why I consider it an honor to be able to give back to the community,” said Whitworth. “If we invest in our community, future generations will return the favor, and the effect will ripple out for generations to come — making Wilkes a destination, not just for those who were born here but for anyone looking to relocate somewhere great.”
The WCC Education Promise fund ensures any qualifying high school graduate in Wilkes, Ashe and Alleghany Counties in North Carolina can get a college degree from Wilkes Community College tuition-free.
“We consider Tammy Whitworth and the entire team at Window World as hometown heroes. They are generous donors, true community leaders and passionate advocates for education,” said Wilkes Community College president Jeff Cox. “We are grateful for your tremendous generosity and the continued support of our students and the future of Wilkes County.”
