VALDOSTA— Students on the Valdosta Campus of Wiregrass Georgia Technical College learned at a special scholarship event that their hard work is paying off. Thanks to the generous donation of friends and supporters of the college, four students were awarded scholarships that will help pay for tuition, fees, books, and/or supplies needed for their programs.
Those receiving scholarships for Fall Semester were: Jacquelyn Mallard (Auto Collision Repair) awarded the Sabal Trail Technical/Industrial Scholarship, Aisha Kinch (Practical Nursing) received the Mary Catherine Coffee Memorial Scholarship, Sharon Johnson (Welding and Joining Technology) received the Coyote Manufacturing Scholarship, Larry Bryant (Industrial Systems Technology) was awarded the Premium Peanut Scholarship, Zachary Douglas (Business Management) received two scholarships, the Ben Copeland Scholarship, and Farmers & Merchants Bank Scholarship, Weston Roberts (Industrial Systems Technology) received the E. Lewis Vaughn Scholarship, Monica Olson (Barbering) received the Adel Cook Chamber Scholarship, and Destini McMillan (Culinary) received the Kiwanis Club of Adel Scholarship. These scholarships were merit based and applicants had to complete an application as well as provide letters of support.
If you or your business would like to support students through scholarships, please contact Crissy Staley, Executive Director of Fundraising.
