CC Alumni Association Student Leader Scholarship

The AAB created and supports the CC Alumni Association Student Leader Scholarship for current sophomores and juniors on financial aid. This is a loan reducing grant that is designed to recognize and reward student leaders and encourage them to stay involved with CC after they graduate. This year, three scholarships were awarded to Jacob Kirksey ’15, Elizabeth Montano ’15, and Emma Whitehead ’16. These outstanding students were recognized again at Homecoming Convocation.
