Western Carolina University Chancellor David O. Belcher will host an educational forum beginning at 12:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 29, to address the regional importance of the Connect NC bond proposal. The event will be held in the theater of WCU’s A.K. Hinds University Center.
On Tuesday, March 15, North Carolina voters will decide on the $2 billion referendum, which would fund state and local infrastructure needs, highway projects and state parks improvements, and provide $110 million for a new WCU Natural Sciences Building.
Speakers will include Belcher, who will address how bond approval would help communities in Western North Carolina, and students representing the Student Government Association, College Republicans and College Democrats. The event includes a question-and-answer period.
