setting prices, social media marketing, hiring staff, customer relations and managing

the topics,” said Dean Kanipe, director of MTCC’s Small Business Center.
Red Cross Blood Drive!
James Ledbetter, son of Tony and Leslie Ledbetter, was the last donation of the day at an American Red Cross Blood Drive on Thursday, July 24th at McDowell Technical Community College. The drive was sponsored by the Student Government Association and resulted in approximately 25 pints of donated blood.
Summertime is an especially critical time for blood donations, with high need but an historically low number of donors. The next local blood drives will be held on Sunday, July 27th from Noon to 4 pm at Concord United Methodist Church on Old Linville Road and on August 7th from 2 pm to 6:30 pm at Bethel Baptist Church. To schedule an donation appointment time, call 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
