WELDON, N.C. – In 2012, the State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) Foundation established a Continuing Education Scholarship Program to help remove financial barriers for students seeking to gain new and/or upgrade current job-related skills. Annually, the program provides a total of 580 scholarships—10 scholarships at $750 each to all 58 community colleges. Target groups for the program are unemployment insurance claimants, unemployed and underemployed adults, military veterans, and members of the North Carolina National Guard.

Halifax Community College (HCC) students were presented SECU Foundation Continuing Education scholarships during the HCC Foundation Inc.’s annual Donor Recognition Luncheon and Scholarship Awards Ceremony, Oct. 23. Recipients for the fall 2014 semester include:

This scholarship program is administered through HCC Workforce & Economic Development Division in collaboration with the HCC Financial Aid Office. Scholarships are need-based.
