CHESTER and MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – The John Tyler Community College Foundation, Inc. awarded more than $133,600 in scholarships to 101 students who will be attending John Tyler Community College during the 2010-2011 academic year. Students received scholarships based on academic performance, programs of study and financial need. At the recent Scholarship Celebration Night, the recipients had the opportunity to share their stories and to personally thank the donors who generously support the Foundation’s scholarship program. Guest speaker Mark James, a coach for The Growth Coach®, motivated the crowd to, “Pay it forward,” and enhance strategic mindsets and actions. The Growth Coach®, affiliated with a major network for coaches in the United States and Canada, specializes in coaching small business owners and self-employed professionals.

While the event was a celebration, it did draw attention to the ever-growing financial needs of John Tyler Community College’s students. The College’s enrollment is soaring, and more students than ever are applying for financial assistance to help them afford tuition, fees and books. “The Foundation received a record 175 scholarship applications this year, and we could only offer scholarships to 101 students,” said Beverley Dew, interim executive director of the John Tyler Community College Foundation. “John Tyler is one of the fastest-growing institutions in the Virginia Community College System. When you add that to a down-turned economy and job losses, the Foundation is truly challenged to keep up with scholarship needs.” Those challenges led the Foundation to explore innovative fundraising avenues. One of which is its upcoming Full Moon Madness event on October 23, 2010. Full Moon Madness features a 4-mile race, a 1-mile Moonwalk, a Howl for Health Festival and music, food and more. All proceeds from the event will go directly to student scholarships. To learn more about all the Full Moon Madness activities and to find out how you can participate, visit www.jtcc.edu/fullmoon.

Although the Foundation wants to grow its scholarship program, it also wants to thank those who continue to generously support it, and congratulate those who have been named as this year’s scholarship recipients:
