“Congratulations to both Daniel and Jason! We are confident that this scholarship will help them continue to achieve and demonstrate the remarkable qualities that earned them this award,” said Natasha Lipscomb, director of student life for the college.
KANNAPOLIS, N.C. — Rowan-Cabarrus Community College is proud to announce two students who have been honored with the State Employees’ Credit Union “People Helping People” scholarship.
The State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) Foundation provides two $5,000 scholarships to each of the 58 North Carolina community colleges.
Recipients for both scholarship programs are selected by the individual college’s scholarship committees. Selections are based on a student’s embodiment of the credit union “People Helping People” philosophy demonstrated through leadership, excellence of character, integrity and community involvement, along with an overall grade point average of 2.5 or higher.
Daniel Groppi of Rowan County is pursuing an associate in science degree. Daniel is passionate about serving his community and helping others.
Jason Long of Cabarrus County is pursuing an associate degree in criminal justice. He has plans to transfer on to a four-year school and get his master’s degree.
“I have been blessed to be able to help many people and to be a good role model to a lot of young people, including children,” said Long.
Recipients can use the scholarship funds for tuition, books, fees, course supplies, and transportation.
“Thank you to the State Employees’ Credit Union for their commitment to Rowan-Cabarrus and our students,” said Carl M. Short, chair of the Rowan-Cabarrus Board of Trustees. “The price of education continues to climb across the country. This makes private funding for both scholarships and operational support that much more important. Rowan-Cabarrus must continue to expand the work of its Foundation to meet these growing needs as well.”
