Despite cold, dreary weather, approximately 80 participants were on hand to deliver information or learn more about financial aid and scholarships during the recent College Night in Franklin.
“This event was a success,” said Financial Aid Coordinator Teresa Harrison. “We immediately received feedback from attendees, and it was all overwhelmingly positive.”
Presenters from PDCCC offered information about financial aid and scholarships. Additionally, the computer lab was open during the first hour so that students could receive assistance filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) forms.
“What an amazing team we have at PDCCC,” said Harrison. “I’m so proud of the way we all come together for events like this. Faculty, staff, students and administrators were well represented. I want to thank everyone for their hard work and dedication.”
The following Southampton High School 17-year-olds won the scholarships at the Franklin event:
- Senior and Upward Bound student Amari Long,
- Senior Alexis Olds
- Junior Taylor Darden
Upcoming financial aid events will be held at the Hobbs Suffolk Campus on Tuesday, March 13, and at the college’s Smithfield location, Tuesday, March 20, both from 5 to 8 p.m. Participants must be present to win the drawings for scholarships.
