Chatfield College awards first East End Adult Education Center Scholarship
June 13th, 2013
Amanda Morgan was awarded a $2,000 scholarship from Chatfield College during her graduation ceremony from the G.E.D. program of the East End Adult Education Center June 11.
Chatfield College President John P. Tafaro attended the graduation event to present Morgan with the first East End Adult Education Center Scholarship from the College.
“I am privileged to be a part of tonight’s recognition of graduates of the East End Adult Education Center. As a former tutor here, I know that completing a GED takes perseverance and I commend each of you on your achievement,” said Tafaro during his scholarship presentation address.
The EEAEC provides education programs for the residents of the East End and surrounding areas. Morgan plans to attend Chatfield College’s Over-the-Rhine campus in the fall. The 2013 East End Adult Education Center Scholarship from Chatfield College is in the amount of $2,000 dollars and distributed over four semesters.
“Receiving a scholarship makes a difference for this student. Chatfield is great because Amanda wants a liberal arts degree; she’s the first in her family to attend college,” said Adele Craft, Executive Director of East End Adult Education Center.
Chatfield College recently announced a $5 million capital campaign aimed at increasing the existing endowment for student scholarships, advancing renovations on the college’s historic St. Martin campus in Brown County, and supporting the renovation of 1544 Central Parkway in Over-the-Rhine, the recently purchased 18,000 square foot building that will provide a permanent, downtown campus for Chatfield College.
