Sylva Rotary gives SCC Student Success Campaign gift of $500

Earlier this month, Sylva Rotary gave Southwestern Community College’s Student Success Campaign a gift of $500.

“We are grateful for the gift from the Sylva Rotary Club to support the Student Success Campaign,” said Brett Woods, SCC’s foundation director.  “Scholarship awards from this fund have already helped numerous local students, like Dominic Caprita of Sylva and Temre Gillig of Franklin, begin to turn their dreams into realities.”

The goal of the SCC Foundation and the Student Success Campaign is to create a $1 million endowed Student Success Fund to help students in perpetuity.

“With some $865,000 already on hand, we are well on our way,” said Woods. “We are grateful to all of our donors who have graciously supported this vital initiative.”

For more information on how you might support the Student Success Campaign, please contact Woods via e-mail at b_woods@southwesterncc.edu.
