— North Country Community College unveiled a new sign recently at the Ticonderoga campus to bring more awareness to the community about the presence of the college.

The sign is positioned at the entrance to the campus and can be clearly seen from both directions on Montcalm Street.

NCCC has been conducting classes in Ticonderoga at this campus since 2005. Prior to that time classes were held in a variety of locations throughout the village.

Dr. Steve Tyrell, NCCC president stated, “I thank Rose Marie Viscardi and Anne McDonald of our board of trustees and the NCCC Foundation for leading the effort to secure underwriting to cover the costs of the signage. And I am grateful to the corporate supporters and individual donors who stepped forward to make the initiative a reality.”

Funding was provided by Glens Falls National Bank, International Paper, Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union, Wal-Mart and several individual donors. Curtis Lumber donated in-kind support with supplies to help erect the signage. The Foundation and the college also thanked the town of Ticonderoga and PRIDE of Ticonderoga for their help throughout the project, including securing needed permits and coordinating project design.

North Country Community College was founded by Essex and Franklin counties in 1967 to provide public post-secondary educational opportunities and services in the region. In addition to Ticonderoga, North Country Community College has campus locations in Saranac Lake and Malone.

Currently 18 associate degrees and 6 certificate programs are offered by NCCC. In May 2012 179 students graduated from NCCC with associate degrees and 89 completed certificate programs.
