From the Morning News:

“The Darla Moore Foundation announced a $5 million gift to the Florence-Darlington Technical College Educational Foundation during a ceremony Thursday morning at the Southeastern Institute of Manufacturing and Technology Center.

The creation of a culinary and hospitality program at FDTC’s Lake City site is the primary focus of the gift, but portions of it will be used for other areas for the college.

Darla Moore Foundation President and CEO Marion Fowler said FDTC has played a vital role in providing educational opportunities to students in the Pee Dee for over 50 years.

“The magnitude of this gift demonstrates our foundation’s recognition of the important role that Florence-Darlington Technical College has played in the economic development of Lake City, Florence, Florence County and the Pee Dee,” Fowler said. “Not only does Florence-Darlington Tech help provide basic job training, it is also on the cutting edge.”
