Longfellow: Making a difference for Durham Tech students!
Longfellow Real Estate Partners, a leading commercial real estate developer in the life sciences industry, made a generous grant of $100,000 to Durham Technical Community College in June 2014. The funds have been used to help Durham Tech students acquire work-ready skills in science, engineering, technology, and math (STEM) to prepare them for jobs in today’s competitive global economy. More than 900 students benefited from academic resources, counseling, and work-study stipends arranged through transitions counselors at the college to help them progress smoothly from academics into the workforce. Here are testimonials from three of those students whose lives were changed thanks to Longfellow’s philanthropy.
