Two Awarded R.E.A.L. Scholarship Awards at RPCC Awards Extended to non-traditional students attending River Parish Community College.
Rubicon awarded two River Parishes Community College students with a Rubicon REAL scholarship award. The two winners were Ashley Landry and Erin Valentine. These individuals have proven themselves dedicated to their college careers despite having to work full-time or nearly full-time to support themselves and their families.
Ashely Landry and Erin Valentine are both Process Technology students at the Luling, Louisiana campus. Rubicon REAL (Rubicon Empowering Adult Learning) Awards are awarded to assist students with educational expenses while working.
These scholarships are merit-based and primarily focused on adult learners, typically considered non-traditional, who desire to continue their education. The REAL Awards give back to those who show dedication to continuing their education.
“River Parishes Community College and the RPCC Foundation are incredibly proud to have Rubicon as a partner. The Rubicon REAL scholarships are an innovative way to make dreams available to the working adults in our community. Together we are changing lives through education and employment opportunities.” — Lillie Murphy, RPCC Development
