NSCC to unveil Make Way program at both county campuses on Thursday


AMHERST – The Nova Scotia Community College Foundation is kicking off Make Way – The Campaign for NSCC in communities throughout the province on Thursday.  

The goal of the campaign is to raise $25 million to support student success at Nova Scotia Community College, through student aid, innovative learning opportunities, instructional equipment and centres of expertise.
Special launch events are planned at NSCC campuses and learning centres across the province. Money raised during the community appeals will remain in the local area and be invested in campus-specific priorities.
In Cumberland County, there will be events at the Cumberland campus in Springhill at 10 a.m. and at the Amherst Learning Centre at 12:30 p.m.
Speakers include principal Don McCormack; campaign leader David Hoffman; and current NSCC student Eliza Kuriyapulli Anthon.
In 2016-2017, the NSCC Foundation awarded 1,000 scholarships and bursaries, and helped 850 students through unforeseen circumstances with urgent aid. However, it received 16,000 applications for awards that same year.
The funds invested in the college through Make Way will mean more resources to support deserving students.
