MONROE — At a ceremony held two weeks ago, a classroom in Building B of South Piedmont Community College’s Old Charlotte Highway Campus was named in memory of Lorene Barnhardt.
Lorene and Caleb, her husband of 47 years, along with the entire Barnhardt family, have been friends and supporters of South Piedmont Community College and its students for many years. Lorene passed away in February.
Friends, community members and family were on hand for the event honoring Lorene’s memory and her legacy of caring.
“Lorene was an important part of the community and South Piedmont for many years and was always looking for ways to make a difference in the lives of those around her,” Dr. Laura Byrd, vice-president of institutional advancement at the college, said. “Because of Lorene and Caleb’s generous gifts, we hear from students every day about how South Piedmont Community College opens doors to new and brighter futures. Only through gifts like that of Caleb and Lorene Barnhardt can SPCC continue to transform the lives of its students and the future of our community.”
