January 27, 2021
SCOTTSBLUFF - The Western Nebraska Community College Foundation has distributed $49,672.02 from the Student Emergency Fund (SEF) to 92 students in need since the COVID-19 pandemic began in March 2020.
Nearly $30,000 was raised from generous donations from the community to help students with urgent needs stay on track with their education. An additional $27,000 was awarded to the WNCC Foundation from the CARES Act in November. The WNCC Foundation originally applied for the maximum $12,000, but was identified as high-need by the State of Nebraska and was granted a total of $27,000.
