Winter Scholars Have Reason to Smile!by Carrie Shaw - Renton Technical College Foundation on January 22, 2021
Winter scholars have reason to smile!
Your support has made all the difference for students despite continued economic uncertainties and the added stresses of a pandemic. Because of your generosity, students began a new year and a new quarter with over $91,000.00 in scholarship support!
They are masked and ready to learn valuable skills in their labs and online. But most of all they are facing 2021 with the added encouragement to succeed. Your gifts go beyond providing direct scholarship and grant support. In a real sense, you are cheering them on toward the brighter future they imagine for themselves and for their families.
As Karsen in the construction program recently shared after losing her job, "School has been so important to me and now because of your generosity, I will be able to continue with my studies - without loans or student debt!"
Please join me in congratulating the 2021 Winter Scholars! You can access the full scholar list here on the RTC Foundation website.
Winter quarter also marked the first awards for three new scholarships. The McLennaghan Education Scholarship, the Dr. Don Bressler Memorial Scholarship, and the new Trade Careers Fund. Many thanks to Robert and Bonnie McLennaghan, Denis and Patty Law, and the Dahlby family for their exceptional support for these generous scholarships.
And thank you for helping to make great careers and education opportunities possible!
