Military Officers Association of America – Southeastern Chapter provides scholarships to BCC students.

Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) Southeastern Chapter (SENCLAND) recently presented two scholarships to Brunswick Community College (BCC) students.

“SENCLAND is dedicated to helping veteran students at Brunswick Community College with educational assistance grants,” says MOAA representative Col. Chrissy Sanford. “There are strict guidelines the recipients must meet to qualify for this honor.”

The association has provided scholarship support for BCC students the past five years, and the grants are applied to tuition and student fees.

“This augments their expenses and takes some pressure off them as they pursue their educational and career goals,” Sanford says.

BCC Foundation Donation

The Foundation of Brunswick Community College works with SENCLAND to identify eligible students and ensure financial security for their educational expenses.

This year’s recipients are Andrew Burgmuller and Misty Vining. Burgmuller served in the United States Marine Corps for eight years and is now pursuing a degree from BCC.

He is actively involved as a work-study student in The Learning Center, the campus tutoring lab. Vining served in the United States Coast Guard and is the campus’ Student Veteran Resource Assistant in the role funded by the Partnership for American Veteran Employment (PAVE) program.

Elizabeth Wassum, executive director of BCC Foundation, says, “I would like to thank the MOAA SENCLAND
chapter for helping support BCC students meet their academic goals. The scholarships they have provided over the last five years are an excellent way to support veteran students and show them that the community appreciates their service.”
