New Spring Scholarship Recipients
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 CarterÂ is completing her degree in teaching at Mary Baldwin College.Â She plans to graduate in May 2014 and immediately begin work towards her Master’s degree in Special Education.Â While pursuing her college education, Quaneilia (aka Shay) has worked as a substitute teacher, special education aideÂ and library volunteer in the Charlottesville City Schools, and worked at West Haven Recreation Center assisting students with homework.Â 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 TurnerÂ is a renewing adult student who enrolled in and completed the Pharmacy Tech program at CATEC last year and is nowÂ returning to Piedmont Virginia Community College toÂ pursue an Associates degree in General Studies.Â She hopes toÂ go on for a Bachelor’s degree. Â Angel works full-time at the University of Virginia. She is raising her young son and staying active in her church community.Â Â Angel is known as a “determined, smart and honest young woman.”Â Her goal is to “learn and grow” and create a life of “promise and fulfillment” for herself and her son.
Renewing Scholars for 2014
The Charlottesville Scholarship Program renews the awards to our Promise Scholars annually through completion of their programs of studies. Scholars reapply by submitting their transcript, a personal statement, and a recommendation from a professor. A 2.0 GPA or above must be maintained. Grants for renewing students increase to encourage the students to continue to work hard and to make up for the decline in other financial aid as students progress through college. It is a goal of the Charlottesville Scholarship Program to reduce or eliminate our scholarsâ€™ college-related debt. In the spring of 2014 the scholarships of 22 students were renewed.
