SKYCTC SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS EXPRESS THEIR GRATITUDE
More than 50 scholarship recipients of Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKYCTC) expressed their gratitude to the donors who made their college journey a possibility at a scholarship luncheon held Thursday, August 29, 2019 on the Colleges Main Campus.
Annually, more than $488,000 is awarded in scholarships that impact 550 SKYCTC students through 54 different college and foundation scholarship funds.
“Our donors give, not to receive recognition or accolades, but because they are passionate about education and knowing they have impacted the lives of one of our students,” says Heather Rogers, Vice President, Resource Development & Executive Director, SKYCTC Foundation.
At the event, students had the opportunity to express their gratitude by filling out personal thank you cards to their donors as well as recording a video testimony of what their scholarship means to them.
The students were asked to write a phrase or one word that describes the impact the scholarship has had on their life Some students wrote that they had zero student loans and would graduate debt-free, while others wrote messages about how the scholarship would help them help other people once they were in their new career.
Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College, too, thanks the donors who make these scholarships possible. It is through their generous donations students can realize their educational and career goals.
