WNNC Foundation kicks off 2014 scholarship funds campaign


Members of the Western Nebraska Community College Foundation kicked off their annual fundraising campaign today all in an effort to raise scholarships for students.
Volunteers met for a luncheon at the Harms Center on the Scottsbluff campus.

Organizers with the WNCC Foundation say the hope to raise $135,000 this year.

Foundation Executive Director Jennifer Rogers says several students could not afford higher education without the help of scholarships the community provides.

Rogers says the foundation provides an outlet for donors to help students achieve their goals.
"We still have many students that would not be able to go to school and meet the dreams that they're hoping to achieve were it not for the scholarships that we have available for them. So that's a key piece to our annual campaign; is helping to get local donors to know that their money is going to helping students achieve their dreams and be successful here at the college."
Last year the foundation raised $380,000 in scholarships to WNCC students at the Alliance, Scottsbluff and Sidney campuses.
