Fleet Reserve Association donates to student success

Jacksonville – Fleet Reserve Association has made a generous donation in memory of Bill Hemmingway to help make an education possible for a Coastal student.


“We are very grateful for the support of the Fleet Reserve Association. This generous gift given in memory of Mr. Bill Hemmingway will make a significant impact on one of Coastal’s Electrical Systems students,” said Krystal Phillips, Executive Director of the CCCC Foundation.


“Coastal has an outstanding reputation in our community, and with gifts like this, Coastal will continue to change lives and impact Onslow County,” Phillips said. “We thank the Fleet Reserve Association for partnering with us and supporting the mission of CCCC.”


Fleet Reserve Association Camp LeJeune Branch 208 was established in 1954 to assist active, reserve, retired and veterans of the Sea Services in and around Onslow County. Besides keeping members informed of important legislative issues, the group also assists members with veteran issues and benefits.


Branch 208 sponsors area students in the Americanism Essay Contest held annually, provides an annual scholarship award to children or grandchildren of members and sponsors a local little league ball team.


The CCCC Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization affiliated with, but independent of, the college. It receives donations of money and equipment on behalf of CCCC and uses them to promote the educational mission of the college and assist students through scholarships and grants.
