Annapolis Valley Register - - COVER STORY -

Staff and stu­dents cel­e­brate a $110,000 do­na­tion to NSCC King­stec Cam­pus from The Ro­tary Club of Wolfville-mud Creek, with Tom Her­man, pres­i­dent of the club, and Don Bureaux, pres­i­dent of NSCC. Jeremiah Banks, a first-year elec­tronic engi­neer­ing tech­ni­cian stu­dent at King­stec Cam­pus, who re­ceived bur­sary sup­port dur­ing this past aca­demic year, said, “The fi­nan­cial help is a huge thing for a lot of stu­dents who just don’t have that tra­di­tional sup­port or some­thing to fall back on. Al­most more than the funds, just re­ceiv­ing awards is a huge en­cour­age­ment - know­ing there are peo­ple out there in the com­mu­nity who want to sup­port me, and other stu­dents, who want to do some­thing great. That is a beau­ti­ful thing and it’s re­ally im­por­tant for stu­dents of all back­grounds. I’m su­per happy that there will be even more op­por­tu­ni­ties for my peers, be­cause of this do­na­tion.”
