From the President Wake County’s population is soaring, and Wake Tech continues to grow along with it. The need for education and workforce training is greater than ever – as is the importance of highquality courses and programs that are accessible, affordable, and most of all, relevant. This past year, we’ve not only grown larger, but stronger, in many ways. In mid-August we opened our brand new Northern Wake Campus, with more than 90% of seats filled. This innovative facility started off strong, meeting all the U.S. Green Building Council’s standards for environmentally responsible building – the first such campus in the nation. A few months later, we opened our Public Safety Training Center on Chapanoke Road. The PSTC is the first centralized facility of its kind in Wake County for training law enforcement officers, corrections officers, firefighters, and other first responders. We purchased land for a new Wake Tech campus in western Wake County, which will be situated in the midst of Lenovo, Fidelity Investments, and many of our other high-tech partners. The location of this new campus in Morrisville will offer a unique and exciting opportunity to provide local industry with the world-class training for which Wake Tech has become known. Wake County residents affirmed Wake Tech’s efforts by passing the fall bond referendum with an overwhelming majority. The bond brought Wake Tech $92 million for the construction of new buildings and renovations on others. County commissioners agreed to fund the rest of our $115 million building plan with operating funds. We expanded our distance education programs, with additional online classes to make a college education more convenient and affordable for the many commuters struggling with rising gas prices. As a result, our online enrollment grew stronger by 50%! Wake Tech students and faculty demonstrated strengths in many ways: Students shone in the Eastern NC Engineers’ Design Competition, our 14th annual Pastry Show and Competition, and state and national finals for Phi Beta Lambda, the national academic society for business and leadership. Chef Caralyn House, pastry instructor in our Culinary Technology program, won the NC Community College System’s Instructor of the Year title, a first for Wake Tech faculty. Accounting Instructor Chuck Bunn was named Outstanding Educator by the NC Association of Certified Public Accountants – also a first, as the honor traditionally goes to university faculty. Esprit de corps at Wake Tech has grown stronger too, especially with the addition of our sports program. With board approval in February, Wake Tech took its place as a Division I, Region 10 member of the National Junior College Athletics Association (NJCAA). Games were quickly scheduled for the 2008-2009 academic year beginning with volleyball, soccer, and golf. Basketball, softball, and baseball will soon follow. While sports caught the eye of athletes and other supporters locally, we found ourselves in the national spotlight when Senator Hillary Clinton visited Wake Tech along the presidential campaign trail in March. Senator Clinton highlighted Wake Tech’s role in training the nation’s workforce. We’re proud of the growth and the strength of our programs. We want everyone who comes to Wake Tech to grow stronger as a result of the high quality services they find here. All kinds of people come to Wake Tech in search of greater possibility. They leave with new knowledge and skills and greater confidence, ready to take bold steps – to start new ventures, solve problems, and make our businesses, our government, and our communities stronger and better.

Foundation Highlights John D. McKinney, Chairman, Wake Tech Foundation Board of Directors On behalf of the Wake Tech Foundation Board of Directors I would like to thank all of the Foundation’s investors and partners for making the 2007-08 fiscal year a success. Despite the economy’s recent challenges, the Foundation successfully launched new initiatives, forged new partnerships, and surpassed fundraising goals. With the help of area corporate and business leaders, family foundations, college employees and retirees, and other friends of the college, the Foundation raised $1.5 million in cash and in-kind gifts – a new record! College faculty and staff shattered their record of giving, exceeding $65,000 with the help of an end-of-the-year challenge grant from the A.E. Finley Foundation. Wake Tech’s employees have significantly increased their investments in the Foundation – nearly doubling their annual giving in just three years! I can’t tell you how invigorating it is to hear employees talk about the Foundation – how the tuition assistance program helped them get professional development and move up, or how a mini-grant helped them find new ways to address classroom challenges. Wake Tech employees and students are at the heart of all we do at the Foundation, and we are thrilled to have earned their vote of confidence. The Foundation’s scholarship program had yet another great year with the addition of three new endowed scholarships, including two by The Yeargan Foundation Charitable Trust and The Seby B. Jones Family Foundation. These long-term investments in Wake Tech’s students are a testament to the quality educational opportunities we offer and the strength of our programs. We are thankful to all our scholarship sponsors, who made it possible for us to award over $155,000 in scholarships to 181 students. This year also marked the beginning of a new partnership with Wake County Human Services and local business and community leaders aimed at helping college-age foster youth pursue an education at Wake Tech. The Fostering Bright Futures Fellowship program is grounded in the premise that young adults coming out of the foster care system need adult mentoring, financial support, and caring role models to succeed in college and prepare for independent adulthood. Fundraising for this new program began in June, and the first five students started classes this fall. The Foundation started the process of extracting and cleaning more than 160,000 alumni records, from 1962 to 2007, to prepare for the launch of a new Alumni Affinity program this fall. The Foundation hopes to reach out to all its alumni, to reconnect and re-engage them in all that is happening at Wake Tech! At the center of everything we do are Foundation programs that benefit faculty, staff, and students. In 2007-08, the Foundation invested $935,866 in program services, including $833,933 in in-kind equipment and specialized services; $53,328 in professional development and recognition for faculty and staff; and $172,634 in merit and financial needbased scholarships and emergency financial assistance. In an effort to better recognize our donors, the Foundation unveiled new donor recognition boards in October 2007. The Corporate Partners board, recognizing both annual and cumulative corporate giving, is located in the front lobby of Holding Hall. The Wall of Honor, which recognizes investments made by family foundations, civic groups, employees and other individuals, is located in the main hallway of Holding Hall. These custom boards are an important, tangible way for us to say thank you to everyone who helps to make Wake Tech successful. The achievements the Foundation has been able to make in the past year, despite national economic turmoil, speak to the resolve, dedication, and accomplishments of all our investors. I am proud to have served as the Foundation’s Board Chair over the last two years, and I look forward to continuing our good work in the next year under Joe Cooper’s leadership. Every day Wake Tech changes lives through education, and you play an important role in making that transformation possible. Thank you for your commitment to Wake Tech and to the community we share.
