Vance-Granville Community College awarded scholarships to a record-high 317 full-time students at ceremonies held Oct. 3 in the college’s Civic Center.In his welcoming remarks, VGCC President Randy Parker thanked the donors who support the college’s Endowment Fund, many of whom were on hand to present their scholarships in person. “We’re helping our students to realize their dreams, provide a better quality of life and promote the higher level of education that’s going to be required for us to compete in the global economy,” Parker said. He noted that more than 5,000 scholarships had been awarded to VGCC students since 1982.Fourteen Presidential Scholar Awards, 82 Presidential Merit Awards, 204 Academic Achievement scholarships and 18 annual (non-endowed) scholarships were awarded at the ceremony, representing almost $200,000.With assets of more than $6 million, VGCC has one of the largest community college endowment and scholarship funds in the state.
