Some of our recent scholarship recipients share the difference the funds made for them:

Tonia Smith

“I was extremely surprised when I was given multiple scholarships this year. I didn’t think students like me would qualify for such large scholarship awards. I think if you stay focused on your goal and push yourself, then returning to college is not as scary as people make it out to be.”  — Tonia Smith, National Defense Industrial Association Scholarship. Smith is a mother of two who works a full-time job in addition to attending TCC.
