The Northwest State Community College Board of Trustees met in regular session on Friday, Aug. 24. on the Archbold campus.
As part of the meeting, Robbin Wilcox, executive director of Development and the NSCC Foundation, and Peter Beck, NSCC Foundation Board chairperson, presented a record-setting check for $808,682 to the college from the Northwest State Community College Foundation. The money is designated for student scholarships, equipment, STEM outreach programs, and support for students.
Over $4 million has been provided through the businesses and individuals who have supported the Foundation over the past 10 years. Beck noted that the support comes from within the NSCC campus, as well as throughout the community.
“The Foundation works hard to allow us to do the things we can do for this college and its students,” he said. “This is a very exciting day.”
The NSCC Foundation has approximately 30 board and committee members representing Fulton, Defiance, Henry, Paulding, Van Wert, and Williams counties. Information can be found online at NorthwestState.edu/nscc-foundation/.
