The Rochester Community and Technical College Foundation has awarded scholarships to over 300 students totaling more than $450,000 for the 2023-2024 school year. These scholarships will be presented at the annual RCTC Foundation Scholarship breakfast on Saturday, September 23, 2023, in the Rochester Regional Sports Center Field House.
Chuka Okose, RCTC Nursing Student and Mildred Montag Nursing Scholarship Recipient shared some thoughts regarding the impact scholarships have on students.
“Every student in this room carries a distinctive narrative and woven into the fabric of each story is a profound testament to the transformative power of scholarships. Scholarships are not mere financial provisions; they are the keys that have unlocked the doors to our aspirations, the guiding lights that have illuminated our paths. As we stand together today, let us remember that scholarships have not only lightened our burdens but have also ignited the flames of gratitude and responsibility. They have endowed our narratives with purpose, and it is our collective duty to ensure that the impact of these scholarships reverberates far beyond these walls, touching the lives of future generations of scholars.”
