Spring 2013 Theresa Thompson Library Scholarship Winners

Congratulations to the Spring 2013 winners of the Theresa Thompson Library Scholarship: Loc Truong and April Ryan!

Loc Truong is an Early Childhood Education major who plans to graduate at the end of 2013. Loc is originally from Vietnam where she learned Vietnamese and French, and, according to one of her instructors here, “despite the fact that she has only been in the United States for two years, her grasp of the (English) language, both written and verbal, is impressive.” She took 21 credit hours last fall, and maintains a GPA above 3.0. Loc loves to read, and is a faithful patron of the CPCC library and her neighborhood public library—she is a clear example of a lifelong learner.

April Ryan is a Horticulture Technology major who maintains a 4.0 GPA, and plans to graduate at the end of 2013. April credits the library for contributing to her success, previously in acquiring a B.S. in Marine Biology from UNC Wilmington, and currently at CPCC toward her horticultural degree.  She is working as a co-op student at Wing Haven, and according to her instructor, “she always demonstrates initiative as well as devotion to her class work…(she) shows excitement and passion in her pursuit of horticultural knowledge.” Without a doubt, she has proven herself a most deserving scholarship winner.
The Theresa Thompson Scholarship for the Fall 2013 season will be open for application from March 4-April 15.  Details of the Scholarship can be found at http://www.cpcc.edu/library/scholarship
