MTC students Emma Ramirez, dental assisting, and Krystal Camacho, nursing, were awarded $500 scholarships from the Palm Aire Women’s Club.
The scholarship money actually is presented by the club to the State College of Florida Foundation which gives the funds to students selection by the Palm Aire Women’s Club screening committee.
“You can rest assured this is money well spent,” said Chris Romine, who is a senior vice president at Northern Trust and the foundation board chair on the SCF Foundation. “These are the people who are coming back into our community and they are taking care of our children.”
