Foundation Awards Close to $50,000 to Students

Tunxis held its 31st annual Student Achievement Recognition Ceremony on May 22 to acknowledge the successes and efforts of its students. This year, the Foundation recognized over 50 students with scholarships totaling almost $50,000.

Scholarship night is a special evening not only for the students who receive the scholarships, but also for the Foundation and its donors. “It is the culmination of the year for the Foundation,” said Tim Fitch, Tunxis Foundation past board president, who announced the Foundation’s awards. “After spending 365 days raising money, we give away a lot of it.” Through its donors, the Foundation is able to provide scholarships so that students can pursue their education, realize their dreams and build a better life for themselves and their families.

On behalf of the Tunxis Foundation, we would like to congratulate all scholarship recipients and wish them the best in their continuing academic pursuits. We would also like to thank all of the individuals, families and companies that provided scholarships to those deserving students. Without the support of our donors, many Tunxis students could not afford the quality education Tunxis Community College has to offer.
