The Atlantic – Rusty Carter Scholarship Fund for CFCC
Meet Anna Vancina, a Cape Fear Community College Student and a recipient of the Atlantic Packaging – Rusty Carter Scholarship.
Cape Fear Community College is located in downtown Wilmington, NC, just a few miles from the Wilmington office of Atlantic Packaging. The college has grown exponentially over the last decade and is an invaluable resource for returning students, for students pursuing technical training and a variety of degrees, or for those looking to save money before moving on to a bigger university. The programs at CFCC are well-regarded and serve our community by producing motivated and educated graduates who seek jobs and business opportunities right here at home.
For years, we have supported students at CFCC through the Atlantic Packaging – Rusty Carter Scholarship. These are funds contributed by employees with a company match and are set aside to be used for students in need of financial assistance. It can be used to help with books, to help a student pay for a program or to cover tuition costs. It is especially helpful for students who don’t otherwise qualify for loans or financial aid and who may not receive money from family.
Since 2010, this scholarship has supported more than 40 CFCC students with over $19,000 in contributions.
It is so amazing to meet the motivated, and purpose-driven students – like Anna – who are scholarship recipients. These are students who will make a real difference in our community and we are so excited to be able to help support them.
