When former Marine Irisa Grimes returned from duty in Iraq, she found it difficult to find a job. Then she learned of a Wells Fargo-sponsored scholarship at CPCC that would enable her to start school right away.

Wells Fargo has made two grants totaling $300,000 to the college’s Veterans Employment Initiative, which provides scholarships and job search assistance to military veterans and their families.
