At the Annual Scholarship Recognition Dinner on November 9, 2017, attendees dined on a Thanksgiving feast after the scholarship recipients received certificates of recognition. During the evening, the College gives thanks for the accomplishments of the students, for the guidance of parents and faculty, and for the generosity of donors.
Junior Nursing student Amanda Carby, delivered the student address. “We have all been told plenty of times that education and knowledge are the keys to success, but to obtain that success we need to have dreams, goals and aspirations,” she said.
Amanda received the Riversville Foundation Scholarship – one of five new scholarships. At the first Scholarship Recognition Dinner in 1995, just six scholarships were awarded to 14 recipients. This year, 45 scholarships were awarded to 98 students.
