Foundation Holds Scholarship Ceremony
The Rochester Community and Technical College Foundation held its annual Scholarship Awards Ceremony to celebrate and recognize scholarship recipients for their achievements on Tuesday, April 29, 2014 in the Performance Court of the RCTC Sports Center.
The Scholarship Awards Ceremony gave public recognition to over 235 incoming, returning, and graduating RCTC students who were selected as scholarship recipients for their exemplary achievements. Scholarship awards totaling more than $290,000 were made based on a combination of factors, including financial need, demonstrated academic excellence, student life involvement, or social contributions. Over 350 family and friends of the recipients attended the ceremony to share this celebration with their student.
Scholarship donors also attended the ceremony to present awards and meet the students who benefited from their generous donations. Not many people can say they are contributing directly to the future quality of life in our community. But our scholarship donors can. They?ve made an investment in education which is the most direct method we know of insuring that a qualified workforce and an educated leadership will guide our community in the future.
