R-CCC Recognizes Fall Scholarship Recipients
Education is the ticket to advancement
September 11, 2014 — On Thursday, September 11, 2014, Roanoke-Chowan Community College (R-CCC) recognized 40 scholarship recipients and 14 donors. R-CCC President Dr. Elam remarked that there are “Great people behind great initiatives. We serve many students that show up with nothing but desire. Education is their ticket to advancement, success, and can be a life-changing experience. The needs in our community are great, but we can meet those needs through the continued support of the Foundation.” Many donors were able to meet with their scholarship recipients and present a certificate and words of encouragement to the students.
Previous SECU Foundation Scholarship recipient Laverne Jones reflected on how the scholarship opportunity has been instrumental to her student success. “It has been a blessing to be a recipient of the State Employees’ Credit Union Scholarship. At age 58, I decided to return to school for a second time to pursue a new career. I want to be an inspiration to my three grandchildren. I told my instructor to look for me when I get my associate’s degree. I will be in this classroom teaching with you.”
Willie Williams, recipient of the DuPont L. Davis Scholarship, stated, “I realized I needed new job skills to be marketable. I am grateful for the help I am receiving. Learning is continuous.”
Roanoke-Chowan Community College is grateful for the continued support of each of the donors listed below and is proud to partner with each outstanding business in the Roanoke-Chowan area. Together we will help change students’ lives.
