The Danville Community College Educational Foundation honored scholarship recipients and donors during the 20th annual Scholarship Reception at the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research on Sept. 9. “This event is a testament to our donors’ desire to further the educational opportunities in our region,” said Shannon Hair, DCC vice president of institutional advancement and development and DCC educational foundation executive director. “Their investment helps ease the burden of college costs for our students who might otherwise not be able to attend. The DCC students who were awarded scholarships this academic year are the future of our region and represent a $500,000 investment from our donors. The scholarship application for the 2020-2021 academic year will open in January and I encourage all of our students to apply.” More than 400 people attended the event and 193 students received scholarships from the DCC Educational Foundation this academic year.
