Fifteen students at Vance-Granville Community College recently received scholarships through the N.C. Golden LEAF Scholars program.

The program is designed to help North Carolinians attend community colleges in the state and is supported by a $750,000 grant from the Golden LEAF Foundation.

Vance-Granville students who received scholarships for the fall 2013 semester were Jarrett Ballard, Jessica Colquitt, Valerie Reid, Thomas Andrews, Brandy Lynch, Kimberly Elliott, Jazzmin Roberts, Tracy Holland, Donna Brown, Veronica Yount, Maxton Richardson, Allyssabeth Noel, Shalonda Duncan, Karl Davis and Shawna Vasilko.

Scholarships may be used for tuition, books, fees, supplies, transportation and childcare relevant to attending classes during the 2013-'14 academic year, as well as certain testing expenses.

The scholarships target students in economically distressed counties and are available for both occupational and curriculum students during the fall, spring and summer semesters.
