NMJC Foundation Hosts Scholarship Reception
10/14/2010 12:05:28 a.m. - Hobbs, NM. On Tuesday, October 5, the New Mexico Junior College Foundation held a scholarship reception at the Lea County Event Center Banquet Hall that allowed scholarship recipients to meet their benefactors.
For the 2010-2011 academic year, the Foundation awarded 130 scholarships totaling $105,700. According to Tina Kunko, Accountant/Controller for the Foundation, the event provides students with the opportunity to meet and thank the scholarship donors personally. “So many times, students simply go to college on scholarships but never meet the person or group that made it possible. This reception provides students with the chance to meet the donors and express their appreciation face-to-face. For the Foundation, it’s another way in which we work to impact students' lives in a positive way.”
