L-R: Gary Boucher, Vice President for Students; Charles Wethington, Executive Director of Institutional Advancement; Don Masch, Rotary President; Raymond Staats, President of Craven Community College; and Eddie Foster, Executive Director at the VOLT Center.

At a recent meeting of the New Bern Breakfast Rotary club, President Don Masch presented a check for $2,000 to Raymond Staats, President of Craven Community College. This donation will allow for a scholarship of $1,000 to a student enrolled in the college’s nursing program and five $200 scholarships for students attending the VOLT Center. The College will select the students for these presentations.

“We are pleased to include these vocational-based scholarships as part of our support to our community,” said President Donald Masch. “We annually present five $1,000 scholarships to graduating seniors in New Bern each year, but we wanted to expand this program to focus on students attending local college and technical programs,” Masch explained.
