CHESTER and MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – Scholarships open doors by easing financial stresses that can interfere with a student’s ability to succeed. This academic year, those doors opened for 162 students who received $333,600 in scholarships thanks to the individuals, businesses and organizations that support the John Tyler Community College (JTCC) Foundation.

The impact these scholarships have on students’ lives goes beyond the classroom, said Heather Ashbeck, JTCC alumna, former Neall Family Scholar, and keynote speaker at the 2018 Scholarship Celebration Luncheon. Ashbeck, a mother of three, came to Tyler after spending 18 years in the United States Air Force. She planned to study business, but one sociology class changed her path, inspiring her to go into social work. Ashbeck said the scholarship she received from the JTCC Foundation allowed her to reduce the number of hours she needed to work, giving her the opportunity to focus on her classes and her newly ignited desire to get involved and to give back. She challenged all the scholarship recipients in attendance to do the same. “Take advantage of the gift that you have been given,” said Ashbeck. “Pay it forward. Get involved, both at school and in your community. Make a change in your life. Then, make a difference in someone else’s life, just as our generous donors have made a difference in our lives.”

“When generous individuals and organizations provide scholarships at Tyler, they are creating life-changing opportunities for our students,” said Rachel Biundo, vice president of institutional advancement at JTCC and executive director of the JTCC Foundation. “We can’t thank them enough for not only making higher education more financially accessible, but also for showing our students that others believe in their ability to succeed.”

The list of students who were awarded scholarships for the 2018-2019 academic year is as follows:
