Aiken Tech announces scholarship funding

Two area organizations recently funded scholarships at Aiken Technical College.

The Aiken Sertoma Club donated $3,000 to fund scholarships for Aiken Technical College students who have a hearing impairment on May 7, according to a news release.

“The Aiken Sertoma Club is pleased to donate to this scholarship for students with hearing disabilities. Their education at Aiken Tech will give them a great start on a happy and productive life. We, Sertoma, value the educational opportunities available for our fellow citizens in Aiken County,” said Aiken Sertoma Club member Donald L. Bartelmay, in the release.

Also, the Hospital Auxiliary of Aiken County recently donated to support scholarships for students enrolled in Aiken Technical College’s nursing, medical assisting and expanded duty dental assisting programs, according to a separate release.

“The Hospital Auxiliary of Aiken County is pleased to continue funding seven nursing, medical assisting, and dental assisting scholarships at Aiken Tech this year with a $9,000 donation. Included are funds to help students in those majors meet unexpected financial needs during the school year,” said Allen Radcliffe, the auxiliary’s scholarship chair. “The auxiliary understands the important contributions of Aiken Tech graduates in these fields in helping provide quality healthcare services to residents in the Aiken area.”

Over the past 18 years, the Hospital Auxiliary of Aiken County has contributed nearly $100,000 to support Aiken Tech students pursuing nursing and allied health majors.

“The ATC Foundation is grateful for the continued scholarship support for nursing and allied health careers. The Hospital Auxiliary’s expansion to also donate funds to support student emergency needs speaks to their commitment to ATC students and health care in Aiken County,” said ATC Foundation Director Beth Sacksteder.
