As part of the October 13 CCI Awards and Scholarship Donor Appreciation Banquet held at the Knoxville Marriott, CCI and student scholarship recipients thanked all of the college’s scholarship donors.
“As the cost of higher education continues to escalate, the need for additional funding for our students becomes even more critical,” said CCI Dean Mike Wirth. “Our students greatly appreciate the opportunity to offer their ‘thanks’ in person to the donors who are able to attend. Having the opportunity to meet and thank all of our generous alumni and friends who make these scholarships possible makes for a truly inspirational evening!”
Almost 200 scholarships were awarded by CCI in 2017, the largest number ever awarded, as a result of the great support provided by CCI donors. Even so, fewer than 8% of the college’s students receive scholarship support from CCI-based scholarships.
