DACC Foundation Hosts Honors Program Scholarship Awards Near $672,000

Danville Area Community College Foundation will host the Annual Honors Program for scholarship recipients Friday, September 20, 2019 in the Mary Miller Center Gymnasium. The Honors Program will begin at 10 AM. Limited parking is available behind the gymnasium. Additional parking is located off of Main Street, north of the Julius W. Hegeler II Advanced Technology Center.

For the 2019-2020 academic year, the Foundation will celebrate awarding 511 scholarships totaling nearly $672,000.  Participants have received a scholarship award for the current academic year. Last year, the Foundation awarded 488 scholarships valued at over $620,000. Scholarship values at DACC have grown each year for more than a decade.

The Foundation’s annual Honors Program celebrates the achievements of scholarship recipients at DACC and the generosity of the donors who support them. The Honors Program is an opportunity for scholarship recipients to meet and thank their donors in person. This year’s program will continue the updated, shorter formal presentation, giving donors and recipients more time to interact.

DACC Presidential Scholars, students representing the top 15 percent of their graduating high school classes who receive full tuition scholarships, will assist checking-in, seating, and serving light refreshments to guests.
