Dawn Foods makes scholarship contribution

The Dawn Foods Foundation recently awarded a generous grant to provide scholarship support for Jackson Community College students.

“We believe in supporting local education, from elementary up through higher education,” said Sarah Richmond, president of the Dawn Foods Foundation. “The vast majority of high school students attend JCC if they choose to stay local, so we are pleased to support their efforts.”

The Dawn Foods Foundation supports three main areas of focus: health and human welfare, education and community vibrancy. “We want to support each of the communities that Dawn Food Products is in, making an investment back into the community that supports us, to create a mutually beneficial relationship,” Richmond said.

Funds will be awarded to deserving JCC students in the coming Fall/Winter semesters.

“We are most grateful for Dawn’s commitment to education in our community, and to our students at Jackson Community College,” said Jason Valente, executive director of the Jackson Community College Foundation.
