Empowered by Scholarships courtesy of the AC Foundation
Stevi was the recipient of National Honor Society and Regents Circle scholarships, as well as a Don Powell Honors Scholarship and an Honors Program Scholarship. The dividends she has reaped are many.
Encouraged by the Foundation's support, Stevi emerged from her shell. She decided to dabble in the study of mass communications and swiftly ascended to the editorship of ACs student newspaper, the Ranger.
"I come from a single-parent household, so money has always been tight, she said. Without financial aid and scholarships, I would not be at AC at all."
Nathaniel is no stranger to acts of compassion
Nathaniel's charitable involvement has helped him to doubly appreciate his own good fortune. A 2017 graduate of Caprock High School, he is an ACE Scholar and the recipient of three scholarships through the AC Foundation.
Nathaniel is a first-generation college student who this school year received $1,500 from the Mack and Arla Forrester Fund, and $500 apiece from the Badger Fund and the Regents Excellence Fund.
"I honestly dont know how I'd be able to make ends meet without the great generosity of so many people at the College. I probably wouldn't be at AC without this assistance."
