SECU ConEd Scholarships

June 15, 2015 – Seven Davidson County Community College continuing education students are recipients of $750 scholarship awards from the State Employees Credit Union (SECU) Foundation. The students are all completing certificates in Industrial Maintenance on the college’s Davie Campus. 

“These scholarships help remove financial barriers for our students seeking to gain new skills or to upgrade current job-related skills,” says Teresa Kines, dean, Davie Campus. “We’re grateful for this support from the SECU Foundation.”

Students receiving scholarships are Jonathan Baity, Christopher Brown, Larry Brown, Jeffrey Hickernell, Gary Holt, Marty McEwen and Robert Peyton. 

SECU Continuing Education Scholarships help meet the needs of North Carolina’s unemployed and underemployed citizens. Ten $750 Continuing Education Scholarships are awarded annually to eligible students at each of the state’s 58 community college campuses. The program focuses on assisting unemployed and underemployed adults, military veterans and members of the National Guard with marketable job skills for future employment. Participants must be enrolled in a program that leads to state recognized or industry-supported credentials.
