donors like you. NFC Foundation scholarships help students overcome financial roadblocks to higher education and career success. The Foundation helps students registered in A.A. and A.S. programs as well as workforce training programs such as the Commercial Driver’s License classes. This fall our scholarship students are enrolled in Business, Engineering Technology, Practical Nursing, Advanced Manufacturing and Production Technology, Law Enforcement and Corrections, Accounting, EMT, and many other courses of study. These students are thriving because donors like you are stepping up to ensure access to life- changing educational opportunities in our region. I am privileged to be able to interact with our Foundation scholarship recipients and witness their enthusiasm for their program of studies and their candid expression of appreciation for their scholarship. A scholarship award communicates 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 54 years old. The Foundation initiatives and scholarships are an empowering stimulus of educational excellence and student success. Donors have given generously, but the need is great in the North Florida College service area of Hamilton County, Jefferson County, Lafayette County, Madison County, Suwannee County and Taylor County. I trust in you, our greater community of like-minded citizens, to stand with us to advance educational opportunities for our deserving students. North Florida College’s motto is “Sentinels stand together.” I challenge you to stand with us! Judy Agner Lundell North Florida College Foundation, Inc.
