Chippewa Valley Technical College students received over 400 scholarships totaling nearly $300,000 during the 2020-21 academic year. Often donors create scholarship funds to memorialize a loved one, or support a cause, but it all comes down to making a difference in the lives of the recipients.
Recipients and donors are annually recognized at a scholarship reception each spring, which was canceled this year due to the pandemic.
