ASHEVILLE – Joseph Fox, Business Administration Chair at Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College, was awarded a full scholarship to attend the 26th Annual Entrepreneurship Education Forum Nov. 7-11 in Austin, Texas.

The scholarship was awarded for Fox’s leadership and creativity in bringing entrepreneurship education to A-B Tech and the community. He also was one of the presenters at the forum.

Fox discussed the vision of A-B Tech’s new Entrepreneurship program to create a regional entrepreneurial spirit throughout Western North Carolina and a discussion of the College’s entrepreneurial model, as well as strategies to foster regional partnerships.
