Welcome from Dean McHugh
Welcome to the Lincoln Campus of Gaston College. We are so happy that you are considering joining our family at Gaston College at the Lincoln Campus. I use the word ‘family’ as I think it, aptly, describes us here. We care for each other. We help each other. We have a common bond. We may not always agree with each other, but we continue to move forward with our lives knowing that deep down inside, we all want the best for each other. It is like a big family.
As a student, there may be many reasons why you decided to attend Gaston College. Perhaps, it has the program that you wish to take. Perhaps, it is closer to home. Perhaps, you realize that it is a lot less expensive than a four-year college. Perhaps, you have a family to take care of and you just cannot move a great distance and leave them. Whatever the reason (or reasons) that you are here, we are glad that you have decided to begin your educational journey with us. Gaston College is here to help anyone who wants to learn. Whether you are here for education or workforce/career training and development, GED/AHS, or Continuing Education, establish your priorities and commit to becoming the best you can be. If I can help you in any way towards achieving your goals, please let me know.
Family members help each other.
John McHugh, Ed. D.
