In many cases, scholarships can be the deciding factor in a student’s decision to attend college.
Each year, the North Arkansas College Foundation hosts an annual Scholarship Luncheon in the L.E. “Gene” Durand Center to allow donors to have lunch with scholarship recipients. When donors and recipients meet, it is a truly meaningful experience. This event is held to recognize our student scholarship recipients and honor the scholarship donors. There is no formal program, however one or two scholarship recipients discuss the impact these scholarships have had on their lives.
Scholarship recipients and donors attend as the guests of the Foundation. Invitations are mailed in October.
