With the support of NFC Foundation Friends and Donors, we are continuing to address the challenges associated with the current worldwide response to COVID-19. Needbased scholarships are a crucial component of student opportunity and regional economic vitality. In addition, the Foundation has extended our services by providing students with a new resource: the NFC Foundation Student Relief Fund. Let’s Talk Scholarships. This year NFC Foundation met a record number of 255 students’ financial needs, awarding over $320,000, because of the generosity of donors like you. NFC Foundation scholarships help students overcome financial roadblocks to higher education and career success. These students are thriving because donors like you are stepping up to ensure access to life-changing educational opportunities in our region. Scholarships communicate our belief in a student’s potential. These scholarships are a testament to our community’s value of education and our belief in higher education’s role in advancing the individual’s potential to contribute to our community, whether they are 18 years old or 64 years old. Sentinels stand together. Judy Agner Lundell 4 NORTH FLORIDA COLLEGE
