Donors, Students Gather for Appreciation Luncheon

Scholarship recipient

More than 200 gathered for the annual Student & Donor Appreciation Luncheon on May 8 to thank those who generously contributed toward scholarship for College of the Mainland students.

In all, about 300 students were awarded scholarships throughout the COM Foundation totaling $245,000.

“I was at a point where I wanted to give up and possibly not attend college this next semester,” COM student Xiomara Del Cid said. “When I received this Shell Scholarship, believe me, it was the light at the end of the tunnel for me. Thank you a million times. I couldn’t have done it without you.”

New scholarships established this year include:

  • Dr. Renate True Memorial Scholarship
  • Kettler Cosmetology and Criminal Justice Scholarships
  • Logical Innovations Endowed Scholarship
  • Penny Finn Memorial Scholarship
  • Sean and Melissa Skipworth IMPACT Endowed Scholarship

Those who attended the luncheon held in the COM Conference Center heard testimonials from scholarship recipients Yudith Salas, Fabiola Alonso and Abdullah Alshah.
