Community College of Vermont (CCV) student Sandy Sherman received a $2,500 medical assisting scholarship from the Brattleboro Rotary Club Gateway Foundation at a Feb. 7 award ceremony at CCV’s Brattleboro academic center. Sherman is the fifth recipient of the Jesse M. Corum IV Scholarship.
The Brattleboro Rotary Club Gateway Foundation established the scholarship in September 2014 to honor late Brattleboro Rotarian Jesse Corum IV, who was active in the Rotary Club for 27 years. He was committed to supporting local education and enhancing the Brattleboro community. Corum had no ties to CCV, but members of the Foundation thought both the college and the chosen area of study were appropriate.
