On Friday, August 22, WVU Tech recognized more than 50 scholarship recipients at a luncheon hosted in the Student Success Center. During the event, students wrote messages to donors, signed a thank-you banner and heard from Campus President Carolyn Long.

Mary Cunningham, a nursing student at WVU Tech, attended the event. Mary, who balances her studies with an externship at the CAMC Memorial Hospital cardiac catheterization lab and a busy family life with five brothers and sisters, was awarded the Fitzwater Sisters Scholarship for full-time nursing students. She said the scholarship will allow her to concentrate on finishing out her senior year.

“This is a real blessing. I want to be a nurse and a servant to the community, and this will help me get there when I may not have been able to otherwise,” she said. “It’s also helping my classmates – who are mothers, full-time workers and students – continue to be amazing.”

President Long said students like Mary are why scholarship funding is so important.

“Our scholarship program is much more than financial support. Awarding a scholarship shows faith and trust in our students, encourages continued academic success and enables students to focus on an education that will allow them to change their very futures,” she said.
