The Zonta Club of Concord recently awarded $6,500 in scholarships to five NHTI students: Krista Boyce, Danielle Bragdon, Courtnie Clark, Jessica Daniels and Jennette Wolfgram.
Scholarships from the Zonta Club of Concord are geared toward women who have returned to college five (or more) years after graduating from high school. Clark and Wolfgram are both first-year nursing students; Boyce is earning a degree in health science with a special focus on nutrition; Bragdon is prepared to graduate later this month with an associate’s degree in human services; and Daniels is a first-year student majoring in dental hygiene.
The awards range from $1,000 to $1,500 per student. This $6,500 contribution from The Zonta Club of Concord represents their largest gift to NHTI.
“The Zonta Club of Concord has been funding scholarships at NHTI for more than a decade,” said Karla Roth, president of the club. “We have no doubt that these five young ladies will reach their educational and career goals. They are dedicated and hard-working, many of whom are balancing a college workload with their home and family life as well as working part- or full-time jobs. It is not easy what they are doing! So the Zonta Club is very pleased to offer them financial assistance.”
“The Zonta Club of Concord has been a very generous and longstanding community partner with the college. In addition to providing tuition assistance, Zonta Club members come to the college each spring to meet the students face-to-face. The president of Zonta invites the students to attend their annual auction and offers the students a chance to speak about how the scholarships have helped them,” said NHTI President Susan Dunton.
Since 2006, the Zonta Club of Concord has awarded more than $30,000 in scholarships to 33 students. For more information about the Zonta Club of Concord, visit zontadistrict1.org/area-1/concord-nh.html.
