Five students from A-B Tech Community College received scholarships through the Golden LEAF Scholarship program for the North Carolina Community College System.  The Golden LEAF Scholarship program, designed to help North Carolinians attend the state’s community colleges, is funded through a $750,000 grant from the Golden LEAF Foundation. 

The scholarship can be used for tuition, books, fees, supplies, transportation and childcare related to attending classes during the 2014-15 academic year, and industry-recognized credential testing expenses that address skill gaps upon course completion.  Eligible students must demonstrate financial need and reside in rural counties that are tobacco-dependent and/or economically distressed. Scholarships for both occupational and curriculum students are available during the fall, spring and summer semesters.

Students from Madison County who were awarded scholarships and their programs of study are Becky Gattis, Criminal Justice Technology; Marvette Flasher, Welding Technology; Ashley Kent, General Occupational Technology/Pre-Nursing; Crystal Arrington, Criminal Justice Technology and Ronnie Rager, Electrical Systems Technology.
