Four Earn Community College Scholarships
Four students will begin the fall semester with scholarships from Carteret-Craven Electric Co-op and the Carteret-Craven Electric Foundation.
The foundation awards up to four scholarships each year, two at Craven Community College and two at Carteret Community College. This year’s recipients are Sarah Marie Stoll, of Newport, Teia Marshall, of Newport; Adrianna Fields of Maysville, and Ashton Baker, of Havelock.
Ms. Stoll is attending Carteret Community College to earn her associate in science degree before transferring to UNC-Chapel Hill, where her ultimate goal is to become a pharmacist.
Ms. Marshall has been accepted into the Paramedic-EMS program at Carteret Community College, with plans to earn her nursing associate’s degree and eventually a registered nurse degree so she can work as a flight medic or in a trauma center.
Ms. Fields is a Craven Community College student who plans to transfer to a four-year university or college to pursue further studies in social work or psychology so she can earn a master’s degree in counseling.
After receiving an associate’s in science transfer degree from Craven Community College, Mr. Baker plans to continue his education and earn degrees in environmental science and business administration
The scholarships pay $250 per student each semester for a total of $1,000 per student for two years of school.
“The goals of these students are admirable, and our judges were impressed with their dedication to their education, said CCEC Communications Director Lisa Galizia. “Our foundation has set aside $41,000 in scholarships for community college studies since 2007 and has helped more than 40 students reach their educational goals.”
The foundation manages funds received through the generosity of Carteret-Craven Electric Co-op members who participate in Operation Round-UP®. The volunteer foundation board members are appointed by the directors of the cooperative and are dedicated to enriching the community by awarding grants, with a focus on individual members meeting individual’s needs.
