She reached out to a mother and her two daughters, all NVCC students, and thanked them for entrusting NVCC with their education.

Student speaker, Shakera Jones, a fourth-semester business student too the podium to thank the donors. Jones shared her own struggle with the transition from high school to college and the difference NVCC had made for her- the faculty, staff and support from the foundation.
