Annual Donor Scholar Recognition Breakfast Held at Pierpont Community and Technical College

Pierpont Community and Technical College in Fairmont introduced some of its scholarship donors to their recipients.

The college held its annual donor scholar recognition breakfast Tuesday morning.

College President Doreen Larson said the event gives both donors and recipients the opportunity to meet face to face.

"These scholarships make the difference in these students' lives in so many ways. Our students are working; a lot of our students have families so they have scraped together the money for their tuitions," Larson said.

"As a nontraditional student, being a little nervous about going back to school, it proved that I can do it and I graduate next week so I am doing it," said Trinity Celapino, scholar.

Celapino said after graduation she will get a job as a physical therapist.
