MEMORIAL PARK CAMPAIGN
Funds will be utilized to provide critically needed preventative maintenance to the water-logged memorial site and the sunken foundation of the current monument. Beyond maintenance, the memorial site will be expanded with a picturesque concrete pad, a small structure, and beautified with landscaping into a proper Veterans Monument Park capable of accommodating future events. As an in-kind contribution, the NCCC Operations Department will oversee the project to completion, as well as ensure maintenance into the future. This Veteran’s Monument Park will act as a pillar of community engagement and a location to hold events honoring those who have served our country.
NCCC will utilize funding to upgrade the College’s existing veteran’s monument through the completion of the following upgrades and renovations:
- Legacy Walkway: A new walkway will be installed from the back of lot 3 connecting the campus to the newly renovated park. Additional lighting added to ensure a safer walking experience. The Future goal is to connect to campus and the community using the Legacy Walkway.
- Reflection Wall: A reflection wall will be constructed to commemorate the heroes with association to NCCC who have served in the military.
- American Flag: A large American flag and new flagpole will adorn this site, bringing attention from visitors and the surrounding community. Electricity will be connected to the site to provide illumination at night.
- POW/MIA Flag: A large POW/MIA flag will adorn the site bringing attention to those who were captured or lost.
- United States Military Branch Wall of Honor: Along the facade of the remembrance wall will be the logos and emblems of the six branches of the military: Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Air Force, Space Force as well as the Merchant Marines.
- Sponsorship Acknowledgement: A plaque acknowledging those who funded this monument park will be prominently displayed in a permanent spot near the entrance to the park.
