Duke Energy recently gave $1,200 to Southwestern Community College’s New Century Scholars (NCS) program.
Each year, seventh graders from throughout SCC’s service area (Jackson, Macon and Swain counties) are identified as New Century Scholars. Students receive last-dollar tuition assistance at SCC so long as they fulfill program obligations throughout their middle- and high-school careers.
The program is funded entirely by annual donations like Duke’s.
Donations may be made payable to New Century Scholars and sent to the following address: SCC Foundation 447 College Drive; Sylva, N.C. 28779.
