FCC was recognized as a Hometown Business Hero by the Frederick County Office of Economic Development as part of the 19th annual Business Appreciation Week (BAW).

This week, groups of ambassadors are visiting more than 100 Frederick County businesses and organizations that support the local economy to show their gratitude and support.

On Wednesday, October 9, ambassadors Sherman Coleman with the Frederick County Office of Economic Development, and Wesley Leatherman and Patty McDonald from Frederick County Workforce Services, pictured above with FCC staff, visited FCC to present a certificate and a medal recognizing its selection as a Hometown Business Hero.

During the event, the ambassadors heard from College leaders on the role FCC plays in the community and about new and emerging programs.

As part of being recognized as a Hometown Business Hero, FCC was asked to select its own Hometown Business Hero to recognize. FCC recognized Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS) and the FCPS Career and Technology Center (CTC) for the vital work it does in the community to serve students.

Michael Concepcion, CTC Principal, and Dr. Kristine Pearl, Career & Technology Education Supervisor, pictured below with FCC staff, were on hand to accept the recognition from FCC.
