WNCC receives grant from bank


SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. – The Western Nebraska Community College Foundation was awarded a $12,500 grant from First National Bank of Omaha.

This grant assists GED graduates by providing scholarships in WNCC’s Basic Nursing Assistant, Medication Aide, Phlebotomy and CPR courses. The scholarships include tuition, fees, and books for low- to moderate-income students.

Students successfully completing these courses have access to entry-level positions in the healthcare field, thus taking the first step toward self-sufficiency in high-demand jobs.

“First National Bank is committed to the communities we operate in and serve,” says First National Bank of Omaha, Scottsbluff retail manager, Laurie Morgheim. “We are proud to support Western Nebraska Community College and their work in helping our neighbors gain the skills necessary to become a part of our local workforce.”
