The Kellogg Community College Foundation is proud to announce eight recipients of the KCC Board of Trustees Scholarship.

The scholarship awards up to $3,375 toward in-district tuition and fees for up to two years at KCC and is open to graduating high school seniors within the College’s service district. Qualifying applicants must have a cumulative high school GPA of 3.2 or higher and must demonstrate leadership experience, community and service activity and involvement in school activities, in addition to committing to participate in the KCC Honors Program.

“These students have demonstrated high academic achievement, leadership and service to their community,” said Teresa Durham, executive director of the KCC Foundation. “We welcome them this fall to KCC, where we are confident they will be successful in their educational pursuits.”
