New River CTC Foundation awards Registration Days Scholarships

[BEAVER, W.Va.] The New River Community and Technical College Foundation is pleased to recognize the 2017-2018 Registration Days scholarship winners:

  • Desiree Bell is a transfer student to New River CTC from Concord University. She lives in McDowell County, attends the Mercer County Campus and is a general studies major.
  • Tamber Lilly plans to graduate from the Medical Laboratory Technician program at the Raleigh County Campus and become a laboratory technician at a local hospital or health care facility.
  • Makayla Walton is a general studies major at New River CTC’s Raleigh County Campus. After graduation, she plans to transfer to a four-year college and pursue a degree in nursing.

Registration events for the fall semester were held at New River CTC campuses in August. To be eligible for the $1,000 scholarship, students were required to initiate the registration process during one of the Registration Day events. The three scholarship winners were chosen through a random drawing.

Registration Days for the spring semester will be held in January, and scholarship give-aways will be announced again before the start of the semester.

During the 2017-2018 academic year, the New River CTC Foundation will fund more than $85,000 in scholarships to students attending the college’s four campuses. This year’s scholarship recipients were honored at a reception in September at the campus in Beaver.
