These recipients were honored at a luncheon hosted on Mitchell’s campus. Students participated in networking opportunities and icebreaker activities while learning more about the College.

Students’ families were present at the luncheon along with Mitchell staff who conversed with the scholarship recipients about college expectations, resources and advice. Students then took part in a campus tour.

“We are excited to welcome the first Mitchell-Crosby Scholarship cohort to campus! These students are receiving a life-changing opportunity to receive two years of higher education completely free,” said Tamara Watkins, director of Strategic Enrollment Management. “We are thankful for our partnership and continued collaboration with Crosby Scholars to promote affordable college access for students in Iredell County.”

The 2022 Mitchell-Crosby Scholarship is presented to graduating Iredell County Crosby Scholars to cover tuition, fees and books for full time students pursuing a degree at Mitchell Community College.

This scholarship was formed from a collaboration between Mitchell Community College and Iredell Crosby Scholars to promote college access and provide affordable opportunities for students to obtain educational credentials while also finding personal success in achieving their educational, personal and professional goals.
