Scholarships pay tuition for students enrolled in a short-term training program.Five continuing education students at Johnston Community College were recently awarded scholarships by the State Employees Credit Union.
The scholarships in the amount of $500 will pay the tuition for students enrolled in a short-term training program that leads to a state-regulated or industry-recognized credential that is offered through continuing education programs at the college. Students who qualify must be unemployed or underemployed, military veterans or members of the national guard and not be a director, employee, or immediate family member of an employee of the SECU.
The following five students received scholarships: Laura Rose of Benson, who is studying phlebotomy; Jennifer Pilkington of Brogden, who is studying EKG technician; Jessica Leon of Benson, who is studying certified nursing assistant II; Graham Sanders of Four Oaks, who is studying biowork; and Kevin Peacock of Smithfield, who is studying manufacturing.
