The Edmonds Community College Foundation this year awarded a record number of scholarships — over 235 scholarships to students in amounts up to $4,500.
Among the new awards this year were two scholarships for students in the College in Prisons program at the Monroe Correctional Complex.
Part of the increase in scholarships this year was due to the generosity of foundation donors who gave more than $340,000 in May at the foundation’s annual gala and auction.
“We are so grateful for the generosity of this community,” said Brad Thomas, executive director of the foundation. “While we are thrilled to provide more scholarships this coming year, there is still a great need for our students.” About 61 percent of EdCC students have some form of financial need.
