RCC Scholarship Recipients and Donors Honored

RCC Scholarship Recipients at the Scholarship Reception at Bethpage Camp-Resort.

The Rappahannock Community College Educational Foundation, Inc. (RCC EFI) hosted its annual scholarship program reception in October to honor and recognize 2018-19 scholarship recipients and donors.

Dr. Robert Gates, RCC EFI board president and scholarship donor, began the evening by recognizing the attendees’ commitment to higher education.  “I recently read that people who engage in any form of higher education experience a 20% to 30% increase in potential lifetime earnings.  I commend the recipients and donors for their commitment,” stated Gates.

College President Dr. Elizabeth H. Crowther welcomed the guests, congratulated students who received scholarships, and thanked donors for their generosity.  “To those students here this evening, know that you are an invaluable member of our community and an extraordinary contributor.  And to our scholarship donors, be proud that you are having a direct hand in changing the lives of our students, as well as contributing to the health of our local economy,” noted Crowther.

Scholarship recipients and donors individually stood to be recognized as Dr. Dave Keel, dean of student development, announced the awardee names and the respective donors.

Shawna Pfohl, recipient of the Thomas Peterson and Alvin Jeanette Roane Fary Memorial Scholarship and the RCC Preakness Party Scholarship, the youngest of four children currently in college, said the scholarships definitely helped out and reduced some of the stress in paying for her education. Pfohl is studying art and psychology in her pursuit to become an Art Therapist.

Scholarship sponsor Dr. Dorothy Cosby Cooke chatted with Patricia Dalton, who received one of the many scholarships funded annually through Dr. Cooke’s endowed fund.  Dalton and Cooke were grateful for the opportunity to meet and learn more about how the scholarship is helping Dalton realize her goals of being a nurse.  “I’m working hard to becoming a nurse while also volunteering to help others. The scholarships I’ve received are extremely important to me,” explained Dalton.

From single mothers to recent high school graduates, students in their teens to those in their 30s and 40s, each scholarship recipient had a different life story but all expressed the same sentiment—the generosity of donors is instrumental in helping them fulfill their education goals.

“Believe it or not, it’s not easy giving away money,” remarked Dr. Crowther. “The Foundation works hard to get money into the hands of those who need it.”

Sarah Pope, RCC EFI Executive Director and Dean of College Advancement, said that the foundation awarded $575,500 in scholarships to over 300 students for the last academic year.   The average award was $1,900 which covers about 40% of full time tuition for the year at RCC.

The scholarship application for the 2019-20 academic year is open until February 15, 2019.  Students need to complete just one online application (www.rappahannock.edu/scholarships) to qualify for more than 100 different scholarships earmarked specifically for RCC students.
