Central Kentucky Association of Realtors presents scholarship money to schools

The Central Kentucky Association of Realtors, at their new location at 1402 Hustonville Road, Suite C, presented representatives from Bluegrass Community and Technical College, Danville campus, and Campbellsville University Harrodsburg with $1,000 checks to go toward scholarships for each school on Jan. 7.

Sissy Fowler, executive officer of CKAR, said the money toward BCTC had already been donated to them online and was matched up to 50%.

Michelle Carter, campus director for BCTC’s Danville campus, was the representative from BCTC. She said the funds donated would go toward helping underrepresented minority students to offset costs for dual credit expenses. She said the school is also working to fill the skills gap in community and technical jobs and that the money comes at a good time because students are struggling during the pandemic.

“This is the perfect time, because a lot of our students, between not having Wi-Fi access, not being able to afford some of the things, and losing their jobs, this is going to help a lot of our students,” she said.

Choe Sargent, assistant vice president of student outreach for Campbellsville University Harrodsburg, said the money donated to the school will go toward students in the skilled trade center who are pursuing trades such as welding.

“Academics is not just getting a diploma to go and teach or do something like that — it also involves certificate programs that BCTC has as well in helping people in the trades, working jobs every day,” he said.
