RCC Students Receive State Employees’ Credit Union Continuing Education ScholarshipsDec 8, 2015
Three students enrolled in the Nursing Assistant 1 course at Rockingham Community College were awarded State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) Continuing Education Scholarships for the Fall 2015 semester.
Jane Emily Anderson, Cynthia Edwards and Jennifer Wilson each received an award of $750 for registration and certification fees, books, course supplies, transportation, childcare, and living expenses while in the Nursing 1 program.
The scholarships were funded by the SECU Foundation. The Foundation established the program to help meet the needs of North Carolina’s unemployed and underemployed residents, focusing on assisting unemployed and underemployed adults, military veterans, and members of the National Guard. It provides 10 – $750 scholarships to each of North Carolina’s 58 community colleges to pay for short-term training that leads to state-recognized or industry-supported credentials.
