training centerHendrick Automotive Group and local business leader Rick Hendrick have donated 23 acres to Central Piedmont Community College. The property, adjacent to the college’s Levine Campus in Matthews, will be used for a new first responder training center.

Central Piedmont plans to build the center in phases, with the first phase opening in 2027 and phase two in 2028. The facility will include law enforcement, fire and rescue, EMS, forensics, detention, and telecommunicator training spaces.

“This generous gift will allow the college to realize its vision of building a first responder training facility in southeast Mecklenburg County, where none currently exists. The college appreciates its long-running partnership with the Hendrick family and Hendrick Automotive Group,” said CPCC President Kandi Deitemeyer.

Outdoor training areas will feature a scenario training village and an emergency driving range. Indoor facilities will house a firing range and specialized fire and rescue equipment.

This donation marks the latest milestone in a longstanding relationship between Central Piedmont and the Hendrick family. The college opened the Joe Hendrick Center for Automotive Technology at the Levine Campus in 2006.
