Northeast Alabama Community College faculty and staff have recently joined a Payroll Deduction Program that will fund a scholarship at the College. Full time and part time staff are eligible to participate in the “Give Back” program. The people who have joined so far will raise over $10,000 in one year for the Faculty and Staff Scholarship.
The scholarship will be available for a student beginning in the fall of 2018. The scholarship application will be posted in February of 2018. The scholarship will be awarded to a student attending NACC who can demonstrate financial need and is pursuing a degree or certificate. This scholarship may be used for tuition, books, and/or fees. Students must have 30 or more semester hours at NACC and a 3.0 GPA to apply. The scholarship is renewable for a second semester if the recipient maintains a 3.0 GPA.
“Going out into the community asking for money to help support the college is vital for the NACC Foundation and its events,” stated Heather Rice, Development Director. “The Foundation holds fund-raising events and seeks out major gifts to provide money for scholarships for students at Northeast and to support the mission of the College. What better way to go out and tell the community that they should give money to Northeast because the faculty and staff supports their students and where they work, which is what we all consider our home and family.”
NACC President Dr. David Campbell stated, “We appreciate Ms. Rice and the Foundation setting this payroll deduction program up for us at the college. This is a completely volunteer program and we are grateful to those who have chosen to participate in it. It’s always great to demonstrate the value of what you do by financially contributing to it yourself and that essentially is what our faculty, staff, and administrators are doing. It’s an excellent program and our students will benefit from it for years to come.”
Payroll deduction is an easy way to fund-raise. If a company would like to give a scholarship through Payroll Deduction, please contact Rice at 256.638.4418 or 256.228.6001, ext. 2301 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
