Northeast Alabama Community College (NACC) has expanded its partnerships with the local Chambers of Commerce to include the Fort Payne Chamber of Commerce, the Mountain Lakes Chamber of Commerce, and the Rainsville Chamber of Commerce. This partnership gives a 20% tuition discount to all Chamber members and their employees.

“Chambers of Commerce and their members are vital to the economic health of a community,” stated NACC President Dr. David Campbell. “Members of these Chambers are among the best and most hard working in the community. We are honored to be able to provide these members and their families a benefit that will help they and their families pursue their educations! They certainly deserve this!”

“The Fort Payne Chamber of Commerce has always had a wonderful partnership with Northeast Alabama Community College, sharing similar missions to help improve our community through education and business growth,” said Chamber Executive Director Jennifer McCurdy. “This is just another step toward connecting our Chamber Members and their employees to educational opportunities at NACC at 20% off their tuition. Dr. Campbell and his staff are always looking forward to new opportunities, and this is another example of their willingness to work with businesses and students.”

The partnership allows new students to apply the tuition discount toward credit-bearing courses. Students must maintain a 2.0 GPA and provide proof of employment by the payment deadline each semester.

Rick Roden, President and CEO of the Mountain Lakes Chamber of Commerce appreciates the strengthened partnership with Northeast. “The Mountain Lakes Chamber of Commerce and our members are very blessed to have Northeast Alabama Community College in our community,” said Roden. “Dr. David Campbell and everyone at NACC have done a wonderful job partnering with Chambers, businesses and industries, and the community to find what the needs are and building programs to meet those needs. We are proud to partner with NACC to help employees and their families with this benefit that can changes lives for generations to come.”

“The Rainsville Chamber of Commerce appreciates its valuable partnership with Northeast Alabama Community College, said Director Sandy Goff. “We extend our deepest gratitude to NACC and Dr. Campbell for their unwavering support in fostering educational opportunities for Chamber members. Through NACC’s generous collaboration, Rainsville Chamber of Commerce members are empowered to thrive with a 20% tuition discount, enhancing both individual growth and community prosperity.”

NACC’s Dean of Student Services is appreciative of the efforts made by each organization to bring this partnership to life. “This is a wonderful opportunity for Chamber members and their employees,” said Dean Hawes. “I would like to say thank you to everyone who worked hard to make this happen for our community and to NACC President, Dr. David Campbell, for his leadership in making these partnerships happen."
