CR Del Norte scholarship award ceremony to be held Sept. 15

The College of the Redwoods Del Norte campus will hold a scholarship award ceremony on Thursday, September 15 at 5:30 p.m. at the campus Library. The college is awarding over $35, 000 in scholarships to 42 CRDN students, the largest amount of scholarship awards ever given out at the campus.

The event will be hosted by the CRDN Endowment Board and catered by Julie Violante. A musical performance will be provided by CR students. Students will be presented with their awards, and get the chance to meet the donors.

"Scholarship dollars are so important," said CRDN Counselor Becky Blatnick. "Given the fact that many special programs for students have been cut, some by as much as 40 percent. Student fees have also increased 55 percent over the last 2 years."

"I would like to thank the scholarship donors," said Blatnick. "Without the generous support of the community, this could not occur."

Scholarship donors include: Crescent City Emblem Club, Good Samaritan Society, Physicians of Sutter Coast Hospital in memory of Wayne Hawthorne, MD, Sutter Coast Hospital, Sutter Coast Hospital Auxiliary, Del Norte Healthcare District, St. Vincent de Paul, Knights of Columbus, College of the Redwoods Del Norte Endowment Board, College of the Redwoods Del Norte staff and faculty, and the Trio Student Support Service Program.

For more information call Becky Blatnick at 707-465-2323.
