Mitchell Community College Foundation and Endowment for Excellence recently announced the establishment of a new current use scholarship, the Scott L. McClure Scholarship.
The fund was established by the McClure family in memory of Mitchell alumnus Scott L. McClure. Born on July 4, 1997, McClure was the son of Ricky Lee McClure and Jeanna Marie Stamper McClure.

Upon graduating from Statesville High School, McClure attended Mitchell Community College. He graduated in 2017 with his Associate in Arts degree and a 3.2 grade point average. His love for and knowledge of computers helped him grow in his career in the IT field. McClure passed away unexpectedly on September 8, 2020.
Individuals may make a gift to the scholarship online at mitchellcc.edu/give or they may send their contribution to Mitchell Community College, 500 W. Broad Street, Statesville, NC 28677.
