CU System
SECU invests 200000 in courthouse renovation
RALEIGH, N.C. (5/28/09)--State Employees' CU (SECU) members, via the SECU Foundation, have provided a $200,000 investment to the Mitchell County Courthouse Foundation for renovations to the historic courthouse.
The Mitchell County Courthouse will house State Employees CU's (SECU) Virtual Learning and Communication Center.
The funds will make way for the SECU Virtual Learning and Communication Center, which will house telecommunications and a public access computer system so area residents can access educational, cultural and economic development opportunities that currently aren't possible. The courthouse, located in Bakersville, N.C., is listed on the National Register of Historic Place by the U.S. Department of the Interior. The renovation will transform the existing property into a place to serve area citizens while preserving the historic significance of the building.

SECU Foundation's investment toward the courthouse "has enabled this small rural community to access education and opportunities it would not have been able to otherwise," said Dr. Daniel Barron, chairman of the Mitchell County Courthouse Foundation. "The receipt of this funding was the most critical part of our campaign, and without it this project could have been held back for well over the next year or possibly longer." Shirley Hise, chairman of SECU's Spruce Pine Advisory Project, noted that the courthouse "is a landmark in our area, and the Mitchell County Courthouse Foundation has worked very hard to make the redevelopment one which will benefit all the citizens in this county."
