SCC Scholars Recognized

Rose ScholarsStanly Community College (SCC) recently recognized all scholarship recipients during a special program held at the Stanly Country Agri-Civic Center. The Scholar Recognition Night is a wonderful event that honors our scholarship recipients. Students have a chance to say a personal and heartfelt “thank you” and be recognized for their achievement, while donors have a chance to see the impact on the lives their investment makes.

SCC President Dr. Brenda Kays gave the welcome and greeted all those present. She shared that over 300 students had applied for scholarships at SCC and these students were the honored 97 scholars that were awarded. Foundation Director Christy Bogle recognized the donors and emphasized the importance of their commitment and contributions to these deserving students.

Heritage Scholar Leah Joyner spoke about the program and the impact it has had on her education at the College. Leah was grateful for the Heritage scholarship she received because it relieved some of the financial burden that comes along with college. As she prepares to transfer to a private institution, she remarked that the community college gave her an opportunity to save some money on the first two years of college.

Stanly Heritage and Annual Scholarship recipients were recognized with certificates of achievement. The Stanly Heritage Endowed Scholarship program is offered through the SCC Foundation to curriculum students. There have been nearly 1,300 scholarships awarded since the inception of the program.

ROSE Chairperson Beth Swanner gave remarks on behalf of the Crutchfield Family Foundation. The ROSE Scholarship program stands for Reaching Out for Success through Education and was initiated in memory of Katherine Sikes Crutchfield, who dedicated her life to educational institutions and through civic and philanthropic organizations. This program provides twenty-five scholarships for female students and they are paired with a mentor for support during their educational journey.

Ms. Swanner also shared about the Dr. H. T. “Toby” Webb Scholar program that offers 25 scholarships to male students. This scholarship is sponsored by the Crutchfield Family Foundation in honor of Dr. Webb, former football coach and mentor to Mr. Ed Crutchfield. Dr. Webb has had a tremendous impact on so many lives and continues to coach and encourage these scholars through the Webb Scholar program.

Rose Scholar recipient, Christine Kirby, gave remarks of gratitude for her scholarship. Christine is a second year Associate Degree Nursing student at SCC. Christine shared how the ROSE scholarship has enabled her to purchase all of her necessary supplies for the Nursing program, which can be fairly expensive. Her experiences with her mentor, Penny Townsend, have been remarkable, noting that Ms. Townsend has been one of the most encouraging figures she’s had throughout her college journey.

Mr. Walter Austin offered comments regarding the Webb Scholarship program in which he is a recipient. Walter is an Information Security Technology student, preparing to graduate in the spring. Walter shared that the Webb scholarship has given him support and motivation when he needed it most.

Both ROSE and Webb scholars were recognized with a certificate of achievement.

Melody Braswell gave closing remarks. “Your donors have made an investment in you,” Melody said. “They didn’t do this for you to pay them back. Rather, they want you to pay it forward. Do well in your classes, get involved at school, graduate, and go make a difference in the world.”
