NVC Community Development Supports Scholarships

NVC joined three other Alamo Colleges in the consolidated student scholarship application judging event held September 19th.  Other colleges participating in the collaborative process for the third year include San Antonio College, Palo Alto College and St. Philip’s College.

More than 1,500 scholarship applications were reviewed by the judges that included the following faculty and staff from NVC:   Toni Canestaro, Angelica Esparza, Jimena Marin, Paul Northway, Barbara Perez, Ruth Prieto, Jack Robbins, Kori Schneider, and Greg Ward.  After reading the student essays, one judge commented that she will be promoting the scholarship application in her class in the future to encourage all students to apply.  

NVC also invites NVC Business Council and area community leaders to serve as judges.  This helps to build partnerships with area businesses as well as enhances the understanding of the need for scholarships.  Participants this year included:  Clinton Jones, vice president and business operations manager senior at Chase Bank; Theresa Patlan, recruiting coordinator at Nationwide; Nigel Lewis, national account executive, Nationwide Affinity Solutions; Bibi Villarreal, senior manager, Capital Group; Walberto Molina, personal banking officer, Frost Bank; and Vanessa Villarreal, community representative of Frost Bank.

In 2013-2014, NVC awarded $188,850 to 221 students from the Alamo Colleges Foundation.  The previous year, NVC awarded $196,244 in internal scholarships to 354 students.  This was an increase from the 2011-2012 figure of $155,521 given to 294 students. Scholarship awards range from $200 to $3,000 per academic year with an average award amount of approximately $750.  The average scholarship amount rose in the past year from $500 and accounts for the drop in the total number of recipients from 2012-13 to 2013-14.  

 
 
 

Employee Giving Breakfast Thanks Donors

As one of the kick-off events for the 2014 Employee Giving Campaign, employees who were donors in the 2013 campaign were treated to a celebration breakfast on September 26.  The event was created to be a thank you to these employees for making last year one of the best ever for the campaign at NVC.  The campaign raised $39,067 last year thanks to these caring employees.  This generosity translated into hundreds of scholarships for students and community programs.  NVC has been able to endow several scholarships in the past few years thanks to employee giving.
