CVTC EAU CLAIRE – Three hundred and sixty Chippewa Valley Technical College (CVTC) students received scholarships totaling more than $325,000 recently when the CVTC Foundation hosted its annual Scholarship Awards Reception on Wednesday, May 4.

College President, Sunem Beaton Garcia, said many CVTC students do not take a “tra

ditional path to success.”

“They face challenges and barriers that may interrupt their educational journeys, such as food insecurity, language barriers, lack of access to technology and financial instability,” she said to donors. “Your commitment and support to providing student scholarships cre

ates opportunities for students to rise about these obstacles. These scholarships change lives.”

The scholarships were given to incoming and continuing students and span a majority of the CVTC program areas.
