Dear Friend of Bucks County Community College:
I am honored to serve as the fourth president of Bucks County Community College, a vibrant place where we help people reach their educational and career goals. We provide the most affordable and accessible educational option for many Buck County residents. In these difficult economic times when educational institutions are experiencing funding challenges, support from our alumni and community partners is more important than ever.
With your help, last year we were able to award more than $225,000 in scholarships to Bucks students. For example, Jennifer, a Quakertown resident, is pursuing a double major in secondary math education and interpersonal psychology. She works three jobs, takes 19 credits, and still manages to maintain a 3.5 GPA. The scholarship we provided for Jennifer will allow her to spend more time on her studies, transfer next year, earn her baccalaureate degree, and achieve her goal of becoming a teacher. Unfortunately, there are many deserving students like Jennifer that we are not able to help.
With your help we can make a real difference for these motivated students. I invite you to join me in supporting our students with a contribution to our 2012-2013 Annual Appeal. Bucks graduates are the fabric that makes our community strong. By supporting our students you invest in education, strengthen our community and provide our citizens with a bright future. Every gift is important. Please give today.
With appreciation and best regards,
Stephanie H. Shanblatt, Ph.D.
