WITC’s loyal and generous donors continue to provide important financial assistance to the students WITC serves. The WITC Foundation awarded 357 scholarships for a total of $142,580 toward fall semester scholarships.
“This was a unique year for students,” said Kim Pearson, WITC Foundation executive director. “While many students faced job loss, illness and uncertainty, they continued to persevere and celebrate triumphs. The added support of receiving a scholarship this year gave our students the confidence and ability to press on with their dreams. We are especially thankful for our supporters. We are proud to have provided more than $200,000 this academic year to help student learning through scholarships.”
Scholarships assist students with education-related costs such as tuition, fees, books, classroom supplies and more.
