Congratulations to GRCC alumna Clare Kolenda, who received the Distinguished Albion College-Community College Transfer Scholarship.
The scholarship, given to one student from six local community colleges, covers 75 percent of tuition. Kolenda had to meet grade-point average requirements and undergo an interview with a selection committee.
Kolenda graduated from GRCC this spring with an associate in arts degree with the MACRAO stamp and completed the Honors Program. She plans to pursue a bachelor’s degree in professional communications, with a minor in Spanish, at Albion.
“I am beyond thrilled to be transferring to Albion this fall, and cannot thank GRCC and its Honors Program enough for preparing me not only to be able to receive this scholarship, but giving me the confidence as a student to achieve my goals,” she said.
