Pennsylvania Highlands Community College Foundation has announced the distribution of over $40,000 in scholarships for the 2010-2011 academic year marking the largest scholarship distribution in the College’s 16 year history. “We are very pleased and proud to be able to provide this assistance to our students,” said Brenda Coughenour Director of Financial Aid. “Our goal is to continue to increase the number of available scholarships so that we can assist as many students as possible.”
This year’s scholarships were provided by American Association of University Women Johnstown Branch, Dominion, Dr. Edward Haluska, Joseph and Joan Mangarella Endowment, Ursula Pawlowski Memorial Scholarship, Sam and Sara Valenty Endowment and the Pennsylvania Highlands Community College Trustees.
