Incoming Legacy Scholars visit KCC for student orientation

Kellogg Community College held a student orientation for incoming Legacy Scholars yesterday and this morning at the college’s Battle Creek campus.

The Legacy Scholars scholarship program began in 2005 through a $4 million endowment established by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. As part of the program, qualifying students who graduate from Battle Creek Public Schools or the Lakeview School District are offered a scholarship for two years of education at Kellogg Community College.
