The scholarship and equipment funds at NorthwestStateCommunity College got a boost from the school’s foundation on Friday.  A check for $495,575 was presented from Peter Beck, chair of the NorthwestState foundation.    Donations from the local communities were a huge part of those funds.             And those scholarship dollars can make the difference between a student realizing an education, and one that can just dream of the chance.


In personnel action, the Northwest State College board of Trustees promoted Christina Schwiebert to coordinator of instructional design and distance learning.                Dawn Hauter was named coordinator of marketing and publications; while Stella Perez and Wendy Scheurich were named to the custodial staff.
