Message from the President


I am pleased to announce that the Charlotte Business Journal has
selected Dr. Kathy Drumm as one of the top 25 area businesswomen. The
nominated business leaders were judged on their business accomplishments
with a focus on a strong record of innovation and outstanding business


Dr. Kathy Drumm has had a distinguished career as a chief financial
officer in N.C. community colleges for 22 years. In her previous
position at Gaston College and in her current position as Executive Vice
President at CPCC since 1994, she is responsible for the College's
financial, information technologies, and facilities management. Prior to
that, she spent four years in industry and ten years in various levels
of financial services for a private college.


CPCC has instituted many innovative means of revenue enhancement under
her direction, including the development of a 501(c) (3) Services
Corporation that funds entrepreneurial business ideas at the College.
Dr. Drumm also serves on the Board of CPCC's BizHub, a collaborative
effort with the city and county that promotes small business success
leading to economic development. As the key administrator over the
facilities of CPCC's six campuses, she has steered several local college
construction bond campaigns, all of which were successful and totaled
over $300 million.  


Dr. Drumm's strong leadership, strategic thinking, and planning
abilities have served her well in a key position with the League for
Innovation in the Community College. As a National Association of
College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) member for nearly 30
years, Dr. Drumm exemplifies the ethical and professional standards of
those in business. Additionally, Dr. Drumm utilizes her business
abilities as a volunteer for several local organizations, including the
State Employees' Credit Union, her church, and the United Way.


While we are most fortunate to have Dr. Drumm at CPCC, she has earned
the respect of financial administrators and business leaders on a state
and national level, and she deserves this recognition as an influential
executive in the Charlotte area.  


Dr. Drumm will be recognized for her accomplishments at the 11th Annual
Women in Business Achievement Award luncheon on Monday, July 16.
