2014 Adult Scholarship Recipients

The Board of Directors of the Charlottesville Scholarship Program approved the recommendation of the Scholarship Committee to award scholarship renewals to two adult students for the spring 2014 semester.

Quaneilia Carter is completing her degree in teaching at Mary Baldwin College.  She plans to graduate in May 2014 and immediately begin work towards her Master’s degree in Special Education.  While pursuing her college education, Quaneilia (aka Shay) has worked as a substitute teacher, special education aide and library volunteer in the Charlottesville City Schools, and worked at West Haven Recreation Center assisting students with homework.  Shay says she “would like to thank everyone for their financial support with tuition, books and fees last year. I hope your will continue to be a part of this journey.”

Angel Turner is a renewing adult student who enrolled in and completed the Pharmacy Tech program at CATEC last year and is now returning to Piedmont Virginia Community College to pursue an Associates degree in General Studies. She hopes to go on for a Bachelor’s degree.  Angel works full-time at the University of Virginia. She is raising her young son and staying active in her church community.   Angel is known as a “determined, smart and honest young woman.”  Her goal is to “learn and grow” and create a life of “promise and fulfillment” for herself and her son.
