Quiet on the course! The Nash Community College Foundation Golf Committee is preparing for its 25th Annual Student Scholarship Golf Classic. The tournament will be held Thursday, October 2nd at Benvenue Country Club in Rocky Mount to provide deserving students with scholarships. Approximately 144 golfers are expected to play during morning and afternoon tee times.
For almost 25 years, golfers and sponsors have assisted students like Dana Litchfield in their pursuit of higher education. A scholarship recipient, Litchfield recently graduated from Nash Community College’s largest nursing class and successfully completed the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). “The most important thing I would like to convey to you is that your efforts change people’s lives,” she shared. “I started out on the road to graduation long ago, but put my education was put on hold as I began a family. The idea of going back to finish my degree was compounded by family and work responsibilities — a common challenge among students who have chosen Nash. The generous contributions from members of the community allowed me to achieve my goal to become a nurse, and there are not sufficient words to explain my gratitude.”
