Seniors Learning for Fun offers scholarship for WKCTC non-traditional students | Events
PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) - For the second year in a row, Paducah’s Seniors Learning for Fun has provided a scholarship for students at West Kentucky Community and Technical College.
This year’s Seniors Learning for Fun Scholarship provides $2,000 for non-traditional students at the Skilled Craft Training Center for 2013-2014 academic year. Last year’s scholarship was for Commonwealth Middle College students.
“Becky (Haus, WKCTC manager of advancement) came to talk with us about all the different programs at the college, and we saw the need to help students at the Skilled Craft Training Center who have children and families and really have no other way to justify going to school,” said Charles Heyduck, Seniors Learning for Fun chairman.
Haus said scholarships for non-traditional students is one area of the college’s scholarship program that needs more funding.
“It’s wonderful that Seniors Learning for Fun has chosen to provide tuition opportunities for these students,” Haus said.
Kevin O’Neill, WKCTC’s continuing education coordinator, oversees the 60-65 member Seniors Learning for Fun. O’Neill said fun and educational events and activities are planned for the group each semester. Spring 2013 offerings will be announced soon. Anyone 50 years old or older can join the group.
