$202,000 In Awards and Scholarships Distributed

Just over $202,000 in awards and scholarships were given to 155 student recipients at CUC's annual Awards Night ceremony, Tuesday, April 1.  The evening's printed program with a complete list of recipients and amounts can be viewed here.

Of the money distributed Tuesday evening, $118,000 came from endowed or annually funded scholarships provided by CUC's alumni and friends.  The remaining $84,000 came from government or other institutional sources.

New this year was the $500 Charles E. Weninger Scholarship awarded to Kelly-Ann Melnychenko, a 2nd year Biology major, for outstanding character and scholarship.  

During his welcome President Haynal commented that none of us have gotten to where we are at this point in our life without much help and support from other people. "The cycle of one generation helping the next is a beautiful thing," Haynal told the students.  "It is a cycle that I challenge those of you who will receive help tonight to continue once you are able."

If you would like to be part of this powerful cycle of support that has blessed so many CUC students over the years, please contact Development Support Specialist Diane Southcott at 403-786-2529 (direct line).
