NEW SCHOLARSHIP AVAILABLE FOR MIDPOINT CAMPUS CENTER
Students attending classes at Midpoint Campus Center in Brunswick can now apply for a new scholarship.
The Lorain County Community College and The University Akron Midpoint Campus Center Scholarship will be awarded, beginning in the spring semester of 2013. Students enrolled in at least six credit hours through LCCC or The University Akron at Midpoint Campus Center may apply for the scholarship, which is worth at least $500.
“This scholarship is about building community,” LCCC Foundation Board of Directors member Bob Knight said. “Lorain County Community College and The University of Akron have invested themselves as part of the Brunswick community and we all want to work together to support that effort.”
The scholarship was established by a $5,000 donation from FirstMerit bank in Medina and contributions from private donors. A total of $10,000 has been raised to fund the annual scholarship. Donors include Highland Square, Kamm Star Contractors, and Knight Development Corp.
“I am delighted by the leadership of Bob and the business community in supporting the growth of the Midpoint Campus,” said Roy Church, President of Lorain County Community College. “The Center and this scholarship help students gain access to higher education close to where they live and work.”
As a Medina business owner, Knight said he understands the importance of quality training close to home for Medina area students.
“It’s my hope that this scholarship will enable more students to access the great education available at Midpoint Campus Center,” Knight said.
