Richmond Community College President Dr. Dale McInnis told the RCC Board of Trustees Tuesday night that all scholarships offered through the college’s foundation have been awarded to students attending fall semester. More than 100 scholarships were awarded and more are needed.
“Any scholarships not accepted will be made available to other students for spring semester. We are pleased to have several donors establishing scholarships now and need more people to consider helping needy students attend college,” McInnis said.
McInnis also said RCC met all eight Critical Success Factor standards established by the N.C. Community College System for accountability purposes. The 2010 report reflects data for Academic Year 2008 – 2009. It showed students transferring from RCC to a member of the N.C. University System performed as well as students who began their freshman year at that institution. It also indicated a 96 percent approval rating by industries using the college’s Industrial Training program.
The Board accepted the transfer of the deed for the F. Diane Honeycutt Center from the City of Laurinburg to the college. An open house for the facility is Aug. 31 rom 2 to 4 p.m.
