Donor & Scholarship Recipient Recognition Dessert

In February, we recognize and acknowledge our scholarship recipients and all our donors and friends who support our scholarship program. Several of our students share the impact of receiving a scholarship and how education has made a difference in their life. The event also includes the announcement of the "Volunteer of the Year" award.

Volunteers at the TVCC Scholarship Review Night

Scholarship Review Night

This event brings community members, staff, faculty, board members and donors together to read and score scholarship applications from students who plan to attend TVCC. The process is a lot of fun and provides friends of the college a deeper understanding of the many challenges students face, especially with financing their education. The Review Night is held in February and includes a delicious meal for all participants.
