ASHEBORO (June 17, 2021)

Several Randolph Community College students recently received $500 scholarships thanks to the State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) Foundation’s Bridge to Career Program.

The students receiving scholarships were Olin Sports and his niece, Courtney, in Emergency Medical Technician (EMT); Jorge Barrios, Samantha Burgess, Matthew Bym, Austin Davis, Edgar Fuentes, Summer Jacobs, John Leonard, Brandon Schultheis, April Stone, Brady White, and Taylor Willey in Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET); and Destinie Beane, Kelli Rush, Emily Rembert, Alisha Knight, and Kaitlyn Walker in Pharmacy Technician.

In all, the College awarded 17 for BLET, eight for EMT, and five for Pharmacy Technician.

The SECU Foundation established the SECU Bridge to Career Program in 2018 to help remove financial barriers for students seeking to obtain state-regulated or industry-recognized credentials through the Workforce Continuing Education Division of their local community college that lead to sustainable wage careers within their local communities.
