ALCOA donates to AMVETS Career Center

Friday, January 3, 2013 — ALCOA’S Badin Generating Facility recently donated $1,000 to Pfeiffer University’s North Carolina AMVETS Career Center, a non-profit veteran’s organization providing volunteer general counseling and education/career/job assistance to those who are or have honorably served in our U.S. military.

The center is in the Stokes Student Center of Pfeiffer University and can be contacted by calling (704) 463-3026 or emailing AMVET@

A check was presented to Gerry Pion, the Career Center’s deputy commander, by Mark Gross, ALCOA’s Hydro Operations manager, during a special ceremony at the company’s Badin office.

Nicole Wright, the company’s Foundation coordinator, summed up the proceedings by saying, “We all owe a tremendous gratitude to the veterans who served America and Alcoa is proud to help support veterans in our community and across North Carolina.  

“Our contribution to the AMVETS Career Center in Stanly County will help establish scholarships for the sons and daughters of military veterans and support the center’s work with veterans seeking to join the local workforce.”
