Bob Philpott Veterans Center

November 11, 2014

* Cape Fear Community College in Wilmington, NC named its campus veterans’ center after longtime student veteran advocate Bob Philpott as part of a series of events to celebrate Veterans Day on Nov 11, 2014.

* Before retiring as CFCC’s veterans affairs coordinator earlier this year, Philpott helped establish CFCC’s veterans center on campus three years ago and was well-known for his support of student veterans and their family members.

* As a 26-year U.S. Coast Guard veteran, Philpott commanded the US Coast Guard Cutters Gallatin and Vigilant during search and rescue missions as well as drug interdiction operations. Bob was awarded two presidential meritorious service medals.

* After his service to the Coast Guard, Philpott joined CFCC’s staff in December of 1993, as an economics instructor. He then served as dean of vocational and technical programs until 2011. Afterwards, he transitioned into his role as CFCC’s veterans affairs coordinator.

* CFCC President Dr. Ted Spring credited Philpott’s dedication to the college’s student veteran population. “Under Mr. Philpot’s leadership, CFCC was recognized nationally for three consecutive years as a Military Friendly School and is considered a model for schools around the country,” Dr. Spring stated.

* Philpott’s distinguished service extends beyond his time in the US Coast Guard. In fact, in 2007, he received the North Carolina Community College System Employee of the Year Award.

* Military veterans and their family members make up nearly 10 percent of CFCC’s student population in degree-seeking programs. CFCC opened the veterans center three years ago to better accommodate the needs of military personnel and their family members who are taking classes at the college.
