Chippewa Valley Technical College (CVTC) students received 264 scholarships totaling more than $143,000 recently when the CVTC Foundation hosted its annual Scholarship Awards Receptions.

At the events, scholarship recipients were paired at tables with representatives from the families or organizations that generously donated the scholarship funds. 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.

Local students receiving scholarships included:

From Black River Falls: Justin Brown, Arnold and Lois Domer Foundation Scholarship and Joel Kinder, Lake Wissota Garden Club Scholarship.

From Blair: Benjamin Nimeskern, I.B.E.W. Local 953-EPD Scholarship.

Chippewa Valley Technical College campuses are located in Chippewa Falls, Eau Claire, Menomonie, Neillsville and River Falls.
