WNC Foundation Recognizes Donors Who Support Scholarships

The Western Nevada College Foundation is taking time to recognize those who helped support scholarships for students attending at the college this school year. The foundation, with the help of community donors, awarded more than 90 scholarships totaling $121,000.

"The contributions make a difference to students and the community by helping scholars meet their academic goals and take their place in the community and work force," said Helaine Jesse, vice president for Development and External Affairs.

WNC awards thousands of dollars each semester to students who qualify for federal grants, or who apply for and receive scholarships. Applications for the 2010-2011 academic year are being accepted through April 1, 2010.
