HCC Student Nancy Watts Awarded Skip and Gael Paschall Scholarship

Haywood Community College Business Administration student, Nancy Watts was recently awarded the Skip Paschall and Gael Penland Paschall Scholarship. The scholarship is for $1000 for both fall and spring semester. Priority for the scholarship is given to students enrolled in the Business Administration program at HCC. Recipients must be enrolled full-time and have a 3.0 grade point average.

“We are so pleased to be a part of the HCC community and to offer assistance to a deserving student,” Gael Paschall says. “We acknowledge the barriers to starting and sustaining a small business and wish to assist a student with business administration as a priority.”

The Paschalls are owners and brokers of Paschall & Associates Realtors, Inc. in Maggie Valley.

Watts started a small Internet home business a few years ago. When her husband became permanently disabled, her business became their primary source of income. “When this happened, I had to refocus my objectives,” Watts explains. “My first goal with a degree in business administration is to enhance my existing business by expanding in volume and market. I look forward to learning skills that will help me further my business.”
