Join us for the Ninth Annual Jack Laughery Ride for Knowledge on Saturday, May 7, 2016 at Rocky Mount Harley-Davidson in Rocky Mount, NC. This year the ride will return to Nash Community College's campus, where NCC will be hosting its first ever “Blue Fest”. Blue Fest is the College’s way of showcasing much of what it has to offer the community. The event will truly be a celebration of work well done. Blue Fest is for the entire family and there will be events of interest for everyone. Visit www.nashcc.edu/bluefest for more information.

The cost is $25 per Bike, which includes meals, pins, and riders only raffle.  Registration will begin at 9:00 am. A complimentary breakfast, riders only raffle ($500 cash or gas card), and Rocky Mount Harley-Davidson discounts and drawings will take place prior to the ride. Lunch will be provided for riders at Nash Community College.

The Jack Laughery Ride for Knowledge serves as a tribute to Jack Laughery, the former CEO and chairman of the Hardee’s restaurant chain along with his wife, Helen and their love of motorcycling and support of higher education. All proceeds from the motorcycle ride benefit the Helen and Jack Laughery Honorary Scholarship Fund at Nash Community College in Rocky Mount, NC.
The Helen and Jack Laughery Honorary Scholarship was established in 2004 to recognize the Laugherys’ philanthropic endeavors and outstanding leadership for the betterment of the Nash/Rocky Mount area. This fund provides annual scholarships to help deserving nontraditional students who return to college to enhance their marketable job skills. Twenty scholarships have been awarded since the scholarship’s establishment.
