In March 2006, Hazard Community and Technical College (HCTC) received its largest gift from an individual in the history of the College.  George F. Green, who had been planning a gift for some time, made a sizeable commitment during the College’s Fulfilling the Promise Campaign.   The gift is for scholarships to students who have been accepted into one of HCTCS’ allied health programs.  When asked about his gift, Mr. Green replied “Hazard Community and Technical College is one of the best things that ever happened to Hazard; I am a firm believer in education, and HCTC has done an excellent job of providing services for the people of eastern Kentucky to be able to get an education.”

Breathitt County Judge Executive Lewis H. Warrix and the Breathitt County Fiscal Court pledged $1,050,000 to Hazard Community and Technical College (HCTC) during the College’s Fulfilling the Promise Campaign.  The gift is for matching funds for the intergenerational multipurpose facility which will house the new visual arts program.  The facility is being planned for the Lees College Campus in Jackson.  The funds will be used for the Invest in the Arts campaign initiative.  In addition, the building will also have a 300-seat auditorium, student center, and other space which will be available to the community.  Judge Warrix’s wife, Grace, has been a member of the College’s Board of Directors for many years and both have been long-term supporters of Lees College Campus of HCTC.
