The National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) awarded the Santee-Lynches Council of Governments a national award for its “Central Carolina Scholars Program” Project at the 2019 Annual Training Conference. Located in the Santee-Lynches region, Central Carolina Technical College (CCTC), which serves the same four-county area, identified a significant challenge in that the average age of their students was in the upper 20s. This meant that many residents were losing years of opportunity to increase their skills and compensation in the workplace and there was a growing gap between open jobs and qualified employees.
