Iowa Lakes Community College Foundation announces Clay County Scholarship non-event event

Iowa Lakes Community College Foundation is retiring the Clay County Golf Event, but everyone is invited to join us in the comfort of your own home as we raise money to assist Clay County students continue their education at any Iowa Lakes campus.

ScholarshipsCurrently, 315 Clay County residents are enrolled at Iowa Lakes Community College. Scholarships help students minimize student loans and motivate students to complete their degrees.

“Scholarships are an opportunity for us to demonstrate our commitment by investing in others,” said Jolene Rogers, executive director of community and business relations. “Whether the student is right out of high school or someone who is changing careers, planned or unplanned, nothing speaks louder than the investment of strangers supporting their dream.”

The Foundation staff continue to partner with the Clay County residents and businesses to raise funds for the Clay County Merit Scholarship Fund. The campaign will be initiated May 1 and virtually conclude on Friday, June 1.
