MONTPELIER—Community College of Vermont (CCV) is pleased to announce that Tiffany Dunican, a CCV-Bennington student, has been awarded the CCV Legacy Scholarship for the 2014-2015 academic year, in honor of former Executive Dean, Advisor and Instructor, Susan Henry.
In order to be considered for the $1,000 scholarship, students must:
- Be a degree student
- Be enrolled for the awarding semester
- Have completed at least 12 credits
- Be in good academic standing
- Demonstrate financial need
- Have benefitted their own CCV community in substantial and meaningful ways
The CCV Legacy Scholarship was created this year to honor faculty and staff members who have given much of their time and energy to the College throughout their careers and whose hard work has benefitted students and co-workers in substantial and meaningful ways.
“I know from my years working as an academic advisor how helpful these scholarships are in allowing our students to achieve their educational goals,” Henry said. “I’m delighted to have been chosen as the first honoree.”
Henry worked at CCV for 21 years and served as the College’s executive dean during her final four years. She retired last spring.
This year alone, CCV has awarded over $100,000 in scholarships to its students.
