Scholarship Recipients Honored at HCC Luncheon

Several scholarship recipients had a chance to thank their scholarship donors in person at a luncheon held recently at Haywood Community College. The luncheon honored scholarship recipients and donors for the current academic year. Donors of both internal and external scholarships were recognized.



Patty Cope, Coordinator of Financial Aid, welcomed the group. She praised donors and thanked them for their generosity With a quote from Longfellow, "Give what you have. To someone it may be better than you dare to think," Cope encouraged donors continued support of the scholarship program.



"It is very important for a scholarship recipient to know who is assisting them and have an opportunity to express their appreciation. This type, of event is often the only opportunity a donor may have to meet the recipient in person. It really helps them see just what a significant difference they are making by providing assistance.

According to Cope, over $62,000 has already been awarded to students. So far, over 120 HCC students have received scholarships for this academic year. These scholarships include awards made by HCC and outside organizations.
