Gateway Community and Technical College invited the community to join its faculty, staff and students in taking the “We’re with Gateway” pledge at its recent community reception. It’s part of a social media campaign about the school and the many ways it touches Northern Kentucky.
“My gratitude to our community continues to grow as I see that Gateway is able to serve our students because this community supports our mission,” said Dr. Fernando Figueroa, college president.
The evening, sponsored by the Gateway Community and Technical College Foundation, began with the unveiling of the Wall of Gratitude, a tribute to all donors, especially the President’s Circle members: BB&T, R.C. Durr Foundation, Oakley and Eva Farris, St. Elizabeth Healthcare, Duke Energy Foundation, Belcan Corp., Dr. Anthony and Gerry Zembrodt, Citibank, Robert M. Butler Memorial Foundation, Fifth Third Bank Foundation and The Drees Co. The latter donated $500,000 to the foundation for the Urban Metro Campus.
The Gateway Gallery opened its initial art exhibit, “Celebration of Community,” showcasing artwork from students, staff and community members.
