Honoring Scholarship Recipients & Donors

120 Students Benefitting From Generosity

Making a difference. That’s what dozens of generous individuals are doing for 120 Western Nevada College students this school year.

The Western Nevada College Foundation recently hosted its 12th annual Scholarship Appreciation & Recognition reception to thank donors who are helping WNC students earn their college degrees. They also honored the scholarship recipients who are working hard to achieve their dreams. Awards totalling $134,430 were made for the 2011-2012 academic year.

The reception featured three student speakers who provided moving accounts of how WNC scholarships have allowed them to further their education and personal development. Foundation Director Amy Ginder hosted the event, and speakers included WNC President Carol Lucey and Foundation Chair Jed Block.

The WNC scholarship program not only makes a difference to students, but also to the community, as WNC scholars meet their academic goals and strengthen the community and workforce.
