Stanly Community College (SCC) recently recognized its 2016-2017 scholarship recipients during a special program held at the Stanly County
Agri-Civic Center. "The Scholar Recognition night is a wonderful event that honors our scholarship recipients and their donors," commented Christy Bogle, SCC Foundation Director. "Students have a chance to express appreciation and be recognized while donors have a chance to see the impact on the lives their investment makes."
Honored speakers included SCC Executive Vice President Robin McCree, Ms. Christy Bogle, Rose Chairperson Beth Swanner, Financial Aid Office representatives Petra Fields and Emily Leslie, and two scholarship recipients.
Scholarship recipient Jeffery Miller, an Associate Degree Nursing student, expressed gratitude for his scholarship and appreciation for his family's support during his educational journey.
SCC graduate Brenda Watson offered comments regarding the Rose Scholarship program. Brenda graduated in 2007 with an Early Childhood Associate degree in Special Education. She stated the scholarship was exactly what she needed at that time in her life and that she is especially grateful for the friendship of her Rose mentor, Lydia Morgan.
All scholarship recipients were recognized with certificates of achievement and received congratulations from Ms. McCree and other College faculty and staff. Ms. Bogle represented scholarship donors not in attendance.
