HANCEVILLE, ALA. — Area students awarded scholarships by Wallace State Community College were recognized during a celebration of student achievement on campus recently.
For the 2018-2019 academic year, Wallace State will award more than $1.2 million in Presidential, Leadership, Academic Excellence, Leadership, Health, Career Technical, Performing Arts, Athletic, Summer Honors and other scholarships in addition to providing scholarships for senior citizens, and GED graduates to students. The Wallace State Alumni Association and Future Foundation also award scholarships each year, and the college administers federal and state-funded financial assistance such as Pell Grants, WIA/TRA funds, Stafford loans, and the college work-study program. Wallace State was designated last year as a Pell Experimental Site for dual enrollment students, and thanks to authorization by Congress, Pell grants are newly available for Summer.
“Congratulations on your achievements, and thank you for choosing Wallace State to begin your story,” said Wallace State President Dr. Vicki Karolewics. She welcomed the group to an outstanding Wallace State student body.
Wallace State has been ranked three times by the Aspen Institute among the nation’s top 150 community colleges, ranked among the Top 3 in the South for workforce development by Southern Business and Development, and is the first choice community college among Alabama High School students taking the ACT. It is one of 30 community colleges selected by the American Association of Community Colleges to lead the Pathways Project, one of only 180 colleges and universities worldwide to be named an All Steinway School, and recently named by the National League for Nursing a Center of Excellence.
Registration for summer semester classes continues. Regular summer term and Mini-term I classes begin May 24. Summer Mini-term II classes begin June 28.
