Archbold, Ohio – On Thursday, April 18th, the Northwest State Community College Foundation proudly awarded 306 scholarships worth in excess of $800,000 to students from the region.

The event celebrated NSCC’s ranking as the #1 community college in Ohio (per a WalletHub report), and spotlighted scholarship recipients, donors, and the community as well!

“We were blessed to hold another spectacular Scholarship Awards event for our community,” said Robbin Wilcox, Executive Director of Development & the NSCC Foundation.

“We are so proud of our students’ accomplishments, and we are grateful for the generosity of our donors – they epitomize what being number one is all about,” Wilcox noted.

The event kicked off with opening remarks by NSCC President Dr. Todd Hernandez and NSCC Foundation Board member Kevin Whitlock (1996 NSCC grad), each providing congratulatory remarks to both students and gratitude to the donors who make the Foundation scholarships possible. Robert Langford, First Energy Regional External Affairs Consultant, provided the Donor perspective.

AMAZING STUDENT STORY

Kimberly White (Industrial Technologies major) provided the student perspective, sharing her perseverance and overcoming seemingly impossible obstacles, including drug use and an intentional overdose. “I graduate next month with my degree in Industrial Technology and will return in the fall to finish my Maintenance Technician degree.”

“I will be able to give my children a better life and NSCC has taught me that I too deserve the beautiful life I am creating,” White said. She is the recipient of the County North Foundation Scholarship, and the Futures Scholarship.
