UA-PTC Foundation donors give the gift of camp
UA-PTC offers a variety of hands-on, non-credit programs just for kids. Many of these public classes and camps are financially out of reach to a large portion of central Arkansas youth.
Through the generosity of several UA-PTC Foundation donors, four students were awarded scholarships to attend the culinary camp of their choice this summer.
Dr. Marico Bryant Howe, Drs. Stanley and Jessica Ellis, and Mr. Gerone Hobbs made donations to the UA-PTC Foundation to create four scholarships. Interested students had to complete an online application and write a 125-word essay explaining their desire to attend culinary camp. A scholarship committee selected the recipients.
“Food forever will be a glue that brings people together from all walks of life,” said scholarship recipient Lakaylah Hall.
All four of the scholarship recipients hope to have a career in culinary arts. The foundation hopes to increase the number of scholarships offered next summer expand the reach of the college’s youth programs.
